Molly Trying To Breed With Everything...!!

Just Bought Two Mollies Today, Male And Female...I know its meant to be two females to one male but the rest of the girls didnt look too healthy..
My male mollie seems to be flinging his *manly bit* out to the side and making it stick up, then he's chasing the other fiish in the tank, including my red tailed shark...!!
Why is he doing that..?
Is he sexually frustrated or something or just a bully..?

Mollies can be very nippy fish. I have a saltwater one which I acclimated to brackish water and I've seen her attack and kill ghost shrimp (which my puffer doesn't do!). The freshwater raised ones aren't as mean, but they can still nip.
