Separating a Molly and Her Babies

I have a red Molly. The babies hatched a couple of days ago. When do you know when to separate mom from the babies?

I would get a breeder's box. You don't want the baby fish to get eaten.

That's certainly interesting. I knew nothing about these particular fish, and didn't know they eat their young or there would be too many. It does appear the breeders box is needed right away.

Normally the breeder box is used just before she gives birth to her babies. When a molly will give birth you'll see a small V appearing on her stomach. This was the time to put her in the breeder box. She would of had the babies and they would have fallen through the holes and would have been safe. Now you either need to remove her from the bowl or like other said put her in a breeder box. As for the babies you'll need to make sure you're feeing them, but not over feeding them. You'll, feed them flake food, but make sure you crush this up. The mother will eat her young at the first chance she can get. Hope this helps.
