One Molly BUT I HAVE FRY!

I have one red velvet molly in my 90 gallons tank-however today I noticed fry in the tank! Is this possible or am I totally insane and/or missing something here?

Mollys can store spertm for long periods, not unusual at all.

Mollies, as well as most other livebearers, can become pregnant up to 8 times from one fertilization. I'd guess it came from the store knocked up.

I find that most livebearer's come from the lfs pregnant. I separated my male and female guppies 3 months ago and the females are still giving birth to fry. Hopefully they are almost done.

Well, seeing as how they're capable of going 8 rounds on one tank of gas, and that gestation is about 28 days, you could be looking at a few more months yet. Have fun!
