Molly fry

Hi this is my first post so I'm not sure if I'm doing it right but I was wondering if it was normal to have a baby molly not growing as fast as the others? My Dalmatian mollies are a week old and they're all growing and swimming around the tank but one just stays at the bottom all day, is a lot smaller and can't swim as well as the others.

Yes, sometimes they are not formed enough before birth. You can get fry that are malformed, have the egg sack still attached, and just not grown enough before birth to do well. Not all make it. All you can do is make sure it gets some food, keep water stable, and give it time.
