Kinda worried about my Molly

She is a balloon molly. She is staying in that one corner of the tank and does not like other fish around her. :( All my other fish are fine but she is not a happy camper. Any ideas?

What other fish are there in the tank? Are they aggressive? maybe she is getting bullied around by the others or is stressed. My fish usually do this when all the good places in the tank are occupied and they cant swim anywhere else.

The only other fish I have are 2 more female mollys and a male molly. My water and everything is just fine. Do you think she is pregnant?

she might be as molly's are very rapid breeders,Does she eat normally? if she does, and does not show any other signs of disease i would not be worried

Yes, she ate normal. I"m so sad, she died tonight. On her belly, she has a pretty dark gravid spot. I just read that a lot of balloon mollies die while giving birth. I"m just so upset!
