fish and heater

just joined the site and had a quick question. i have a mollie, not sure what specific species, but it is black with a fan tail. it seems to be hovering around the heater, is this a problem?

i have had him for about a week. the tank is a 55 gallon, started about three weeks ago, i have the one mollie and two danios, and about 6 or 7 small goldfish. i know the goldfish will get larger quick, so they will be transfored in the not to distant future. hope some of this helps, thanks for all replies.

do you have salt in that tank? Livebearers require salt

They don't require salt unless they were adapted to salty conditions. Poecilia velifera probably will.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
