Breeder Pond for Pregnant Molly


About: Let's be the miscellaneous Channel!

If there's a lot of Fish in your community tank \ pond your pregnant Fish may feel stressed.

Remove her when you see the Gravid spot.

We must make a separate tank for them to give birth (Live-bearers)

They must be left alone till they give birth.

Once they're done giving birth, take them out of the breeder before they eat the Fry.
