When should I separate my pregnant fish?

Ideally, pregnant females should be placed on their own in a separate aquarium with lots of feathery plants where they can give birth in a stress-free environment. Then again, once she releases the fry she is returned to the main tank and the fry can be grown on separately.

How long can a fish stay in a breeder box?

How long do you keep fry in the breeder box? In general, the babies should be large enough to not fit in mouths of the adult fish before you add them back into your main tank. For livebearer fry, this may be as soon as 4 to 5 weeks. What do you do with baby fish you don’t want?

When should I put my pregnant Molly in the breeder box?

I recommend writting down when she gives birth, and then next time, about a month later, keep a close eye on her… When you catch her giving birth… move her to the box. Put lots of fake/real plants so in case you don’t catch her in time the babies will survive.
