Most of time they already pregnant before you you buy them from aquarium dealer. Females may give babies 3-4 times even seen absence of males because of their tendency of holding sperms. Dalmation molly are live bearers which means they does not lay eggs, they directly give birth to young fry. They can do well in small aquariums. Molly tends to eat their babies just after giving birth so you need to separate the babies from their mother as well as other tank mates. Sometime they try to chase other tank mates with larger fin.
