Balloon molly losing color After fight with Dalmation Molly
 
I've had these two fish for about two months now. and just recently saw the dalmation molly nipping at the balloon molly (which has since been in the corner of our 10gal tank). AND the balloon molly has lost color on the top. is it stressed out? i don't know their gender but i think she's a girl. were they fighting?? i heard somewhere this could be a sign of mating as well. i'm worried about both of them.

look at the fishes closely.see the anal fin?? look at the fish from the back or belly up you will see this fin shape ( <- ) if it's a female and a ( < ) if it's a male and yes your fish is stressed out.if they are both female or male i'de remove the bully and give it a time out and after that i will return him to the main tank to see whether he behaves himself better.
