    Nice work. What size is the aquarium? It looks like you have plenty of hiding places for the fry, though I don't think mollies are big fry-eaters.

    It is a 10 gallon tank. They may or may not eat their fry but I did see one female devour a red cherry shrimp I had in there for uneaten food duty.

    Success! About 50 fry hiding in the plants.

    Now to work on my outdoor 50 gallon pond for a grow out tank in the summer... Plan on using an aquaponics set up with a solar water pump.

    I've done the Molly breeding (by accident) before.

    They do tend to eat their fry after one or two days.

    Nice! Please post updates on which solar powered pump you get. I'm thinking of doing something similar in near future.

    I will try and post my progress as I get further through the process. Still in the planning stage.
