Pregnant fish laying eggs #1
Could someone be able to identify what type of fish I have laying eggs.
When I bought the fish I was told it was Sailfin Molly, but I know Mollys do not lay eggs. Any help on identification of this fish would be appreciated.
I've attached photos of the eggs and the fish in question.

She is a molly. Those are undeveloped or infertile eggs. Possibly some sort of stress caused her to abort them.

Ahhhh. That explains it. I had those very same mysterious things on a circulation pump that I changed out and couldn't figure out what they were.
