2 female molly's fighting help asap!!

I just noticed my 2 female molly's fighting. They we're doing circles around each other and nipping at each other's stomach's. I don't know what to do! Do I separate them? I think 1 is preggers, my dalmatian one, and possibly the orange one is preggers, so I don't know what to do! What do I do?? Please help!

Do they fight constantly? Some of my females chase each other from time to time but the quarrels are generally quick. You'll be the best judge if you need to separate em if it looks like they're hurting each other.

Pregnant mollies do get a bit more aggressive so that's probably a good reason as to why you're seeing this behavior. As long as you don't see the target fish getting hurt and acting strange they should be able to work it out between themselves :)
