Get some Prime water conditioner by Seaxhem. Dose 2-drops/gal with water changes and 1-drop/gal daily until you're sure your tank is cycled. If you get major readings for nitrate, you'll know your tank is overstocked (but cycled).

I've had the tank since september, these are the first fish to die of unexplained causes (i.e filter trapped a mollie when it fell one day, sucker gave way).
So surely it will have cycled by now?

IMO the best thing you can do is water changes if you want to do something that will immediately help your fish.

just an fyi (as i agree with everyone about compatibility of tank mates and testing your water. in a pinch you can bring a sample of your water to a pet store and they can do it for you ) mollies have never lived well for me. they always seem to do better with a little salt in the water but you have to be careful with what fish can handle that and what ones can't. i keep cories and they don't like salt.

never stop learning, as new things are discovered everyday.

For the amount of fish you have in that aquarium you will need a 150+ gallon tank. You are very heavy stocked.
