Hi,

My friend's tank has 4 female 2 males sailfin mollies of various colours. One of the females is pregnant. I'm not sure if she is looking for a spot to drop off the young but the 2 males just wouldn't let her rest anywhere.

Should I ask him to separate her to a different tank or is this natural behaviour and she will just be fine?

The tank is decently planted.



Thanks for your help

Thats normal. If you want to save the fry move her, if you only want a few to none leave her in the main tank.
