How many babies do Mollies have at one time?


Answer by  marns (77)

Mollies are livebearers, meaning they give birth to live babies. The babies are called fry. Once a male has impregnated a female, she can give birth up to 2 or 3 times. Each time she has babies, she can have anywhere from 10 to 40 fry. However, They can and do eat their young, so separate them.

With conditions right, females will produce babies once a month, even without a male. The age of the female helps determine how many babies she produces-up to about 60.

Mollies have alot of babys it could be anywhere from 10 to 200 but just remeber that just because your fish has alot does not mean they will all live.

When Mollies start to breed, they usually will have about 12 babies. Later, when the Mollies are more mature, they will have up to 80 to 100 fry at a time, and can have babies every 30 days. They are a fun and easy fish to breed.

My Mollie had 24 babies (well that is what survived) in my fishtank with all of my other fish. They were not eaten. The mothers or fathers, not sure, actually protected them and chased all the other fish away.
