When the males argue amongst themselves over her...

YouTube - Molly Fight...

I hope this isn't considered cruel... like the stickied thread says (bettas fighting...)... well this is just mollies doing a... dance(?) to each other to decide who gets the female...

I just thought it was interesting fish behavior... how they argue over who gets the female... they aren't really fighting... idk what they are doing?

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

I think that they are competing for breeding rights

How many males and females do you have?

I've read that there should be four females to one male. This site says 3:1 ratio: Freshwater Aquarium: mollies, male female ratio, male aggression
