LiveBearer Fan Posted December 9, 2020 Share Posted December 9, 2020 I thought my female black molly was pregnant because her belly was so large. However, I notice that every morning she is "thinner". During the day she gets larger and poops. A LOT. And the strands are long. (Today my male platy and molly ate her poop twice.) I am feeding 2 mollies and 2 platy. I put in enough food that it is gone within 3 minutes. However, I notice that the female molly stays at the top of the tank swimming around, skimming the surface with her mouth open. The platy fish who come up to the surface about 30 seconds after I place the food in the tank barely get any of the food. How do I change her eating habits without starving the other fish? Should she be separated? I only feed them twice a day (8am-ish, and 6pm-ish). I am afraid she is going to eat herself to death. (I have attached a picture of her at 2:40 pm today. She has not eaten since 8 this morning. But she has had repeated long strings of poop.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
