Can I keep a SOLO Molly ?? or are they schooling fish?

I have never owned livebearers - so i Don't know much about guppies/platies/mollies/swordtails.

But I always see them at the fish shop - I really like swordtails and mollies.
I saw this Balloon/Dalmation molly - Very Pretty !!!
So I was wondering, if I get them - can I just get 1 ?
or do they need company?

Mollies will do fine by themselves. So will just about any livebearer. Just remember, females may already be pregnant when you get them. Then they're not so alone.

I'm no expert but i have regular black mollies and they are always together. I have 3 in a community 55 and they are always hanging out. I don't know if they are considered "schooling" but I think they enjoy eachothers company.

Why just one?

You can keep one molly. They can prefer company but will be fine on their own.
