Question molly behavior

i have a male molly the seems to be chasing all my newly introduced fish. his top fin keeps going up while he chases them. this is like his "mating dance?" he didn't do it before i introduced my 3 new girls.

What kind of molly? If it is the gold dust like mine are he may see the orange of the goldfish and think it is competitor or simply another molly.

Also could be a warning to new comers that he is the top fin in the tank. Sorta setting straight the ranking order.

He's a dalmation molly. And we have no other black ones like him. We did get a white dalmation molly that he seems to have a crush on.

Err.. I am not an expert ... but the guy at my aquarium told me that mollies dont go well with goldfishes and might harm them.

The petstore told me its fine just watch the ammonia levels and they had a goldfish in every tank. He seems to leave the goldfish alone most the time with the exception of him showing off
