sick guppies and mollies.

I have a 29 gallon tank. It is a little over stocked but I'm filter with a 30 topfin and a 50 bio wheel. This week I lost 3 guppies and a molly. The guppies just got lethargic stayed in a corner and dies. The Molly looked like its back was broke and made it most of the week. Now I got another Molly with the same problem and another sick guppy. Any advise?

No the guppies looked fine just dead. And the mollies got that weird broken back look. That all I know. I just releast my sick guppy back after he was quarantine for a night he seems to be ok.

Forgot to say the only mollies that are acting funny are my black ones.

Since the tank is a little over stocked I was wondering if maybe they not gettin enough oxygen. This is really freakin me out and I don't wanna loose my fish.

Not really. I do have a peacock eel but he keeps to himself and really doesn't come out much. I got mostly mollies platties and guppies.
