Ok, less sleepy response.

Mollies really shouldnt be kept in a tank less than around 10 gallons. No fish should really :roll:

Could you post other details on what your set up is? Filter? heater? etc etc etc.

Also, are you testing your levels; ammonia, nitrites and nitrates? if so, what are the numbers?

You say you cant get a bigger tank (pm), why not? If you want my honest opinion, if 1.5 G is the biggest tank you can have......bag up your fish, take them to the local lfs, and give them first. Keeping any fish in a tank that small is inhumane. People used, and no doubt still do, keep bettas in tank of that size, and mollies likely too, and whilst they can live, and breed as you can see, you are causing them a life of misery.

Sorry to be a downer, but if i were you, and want a tank of that size, shrimp/a snail are about your options.
