Default Molly Ready to Give Birth?

My gold dust balloon belly molly has to be ready to give birth. She's so gravid, that every once in a while, she swims almost vertically! When she gets back to the top of the tank, she's able to level out again---it's pretty cute. Any predictions on when she may give birth? Will my water temp. of 80 degrees help the birthing process along? Thanks!

Warmer water can help fish, but it doesn't make a whole lot of difference, as far as I know.
I don't know when she'll give birth because you didn't mention how long she'd been like this. But if she's been fat and bulging for about a month, you'll probably have a bunch of little babies soon Good luck!

Thanks for the response, Cichlidsrule. I've had Goldie since Dec. 27, and her belly was starting to get big when I bought her. I'm checking her every morning and night now---my wife thinks I'm crazy! Hopefully something will happen soon!

On another note, one of my black mollies has a silver coloring under her mouth that goes down her belly towards her fins. She is beautiful. What do you think her parents were? A black molly and a dalmatian molly?

I also have a dalmatian molly that is mostly silver with orange spots on her back. Do you think her parents were a dalmatian molly and a gold molly?

Thanks!
