Unhappy Mollies not eating

I bought two black mollies last night and besides i woke up this morning and the one was giving birth they wont eat i spinkled some Tetramin Granules right over top of them twice so far and they wont even look at it they are picking stuff off my fake plants. im not sure what to do. Also my Betta is eating all the food i put in before the tetras can get to it even if i feed him his pellets first he still goes for the other stuff too.

Mollies are very much herbivorous although they do often eat the generic flake that most common aquarium fish will eat. If they have the chance they will eat from a herbivore food that goes into the tank. They are picking at the algae that exists on most live and fake plants.

Your Molly just gave birth so it will not be hungry for 12-24 hrs. The Betta will eat the baby mollies also the Tetras if their is not enough cover for them. The mollies love algae waffers. Mine go crazy for them.

some algea waffers or spirulina flakes would be great for your mollies. They need some veggie type foods in their diet.
