I'm pretty sure flakes and brine shrimp is fine for mollies, but I can't really say for the baby guppies and blood worms. Sorry. Have you tried to see if your fish like them?

Yep mollies will eat pretty much everything - even hair algae off plants! They love bloodworm. I'm not sure they would eat baby guppies TBH - they may, or may not. My mollies never ate their fry, and many other peoples mollies didn't eat theit fry, but also, many mollies do eat their own fry. Personally I wouldn't give them guppy fry - I'm too soft-hearted, LOL!

But I think that flakes and frozen/freeze-dried brine shrimp are best. Something about feeding them baby guppies makes me sad. :(
