My thinking also, it is why I have asked for levels to be sent, mollie is more than likely gasping for oxygen from water surface,, mollies are fairly hardy fish but they do not tolerate high nitrate readings.
If there is a chance left for the fish in the tank, the above advice must be undertaken immediately.

I have only one of the babies from that fry now as i gave the rest to friends and family that also have tanks. Mollies are easy to take care of but hard to heal when not healthy. Clean your filter real good if you have a bio sponge i wouldn't scrub it but I would rinse it real well with purified water and up you oxygen lvls. Hope this helps
