Molly help needed please
 
Hello all there; I have 2 pairs of black molly. I thought that one of my molly was pregnant; so I moved her into the another compartment of my tank. 2 days later; I realized that she wasn't so. So, rather introducing into the main tank; I put one female and one male black molly with her making the total fish of 3 in that compartment. As soon as I put them; she started going crazy and started chasing both them away. While feeding; she was chasing them very badly.

What should I do? Why is it so? Please Help

Thank You.

Easy solution is to remove the fish you placed with her. Dominant fish of nearly all species will assert themselves.

It's odd, but every so often you'll find a bully fish.

One of my platys chased the otherone to death before I could remove it. :(

After this; I moved her with the other fishes in the main compartment and she's fine. I guess she was acting bullish when she was alone.
