Help: Male Balloon Molly

My male Balloon Molly is constantly chasing one of my females. I have 5 female Balloon Mollies but he only chases one of them. He has chased her 24/7 since I got him a little over a month ago. I think he's "had his way with her" and is no longer trying to mate from what I can tell. I don't know what to do and I don't want to have to separate him. Any ideas? Thank you!

Separating him may not be a bad idea. I'm not one to tell but are the other Mollies possibly pregnant? I brought home a normal molly and my male continued to chase the one before getting the new female. I have a feeling my new female was pregnant, so not as 'interesting' to the male.

Also how much hiding is there in the tank, is there plenty of line of sight blocks where the fish can go to? Although mollies do not go into caves I find my one female tends to hide in holes and in a log thing I got. Do you have a picture of your aquarium?

Female mollies think of only one thing, food. Male mollies think of 2 things, sex and food, and in that order. That is their life.
