One of the female black molly fishes in my aquarium gave birth today. Surprisingly, there are more than forty babies. This is the first time that a molly fish in my aquarium giving birth to over forty babies. She was heavily pregnant last night and I expected her to deliver soon. So I carefully separated her from the rest of the fishes to a small planted tank. Most of the baby fishes are pure black in color and some of them are having white spots. Mollies usually give birth to bigger babies compared to other livebearers and my black molly is also not different. She has been in my aquarium for more than two and a half years and within this time she had given birth many times.
