I believe that they can cross breed but not 100% sure. I know swords and molly's can so why not mollys and mollys? How is the fish swimming? Sideways? Using his whole body to move like he's really struggling?

Swords and mollies won't breed. Swords and platties will, and mollies and guppies can. Different mollies will also interbreed.

I too would like to know more about how the molly is swimming before i can help.

Sounds like the one who dug the hole is claiming it's territory.

Yes, it is possible for all mollies to breed with each other. I have a fresh fry between a Balloon Dalmatian Molly, female, and a large black layertail sail fin molly , male.

You should consider putting your balloon molly in a breeder, because most of the time you will have a hard time telling if they are ready to burst with fry. If it isn't a batch of fry, it is isolated and it will make it easier treating disease or any possible disorder.
