Yes add another female or the Male will bug her to death. How big is your tank?

That's too small. You need at least 10gal per molly. They are too active for a small tank. Maybe you can keep the fry in the 10 gal.

I don't know how big your mollies are but they get between 2-7 inches depending on breed. What kind did you get?

What do their back fins/tail fin look like? Are they short or long? Can you post a pic?
I would still get a bigger tank for the adults and keep the fry separate in the 10 gal.
