Interesting with the rust spots on your molly. Mine had the same markings (girl who scooped her up checked for like 3 minutes to make sure it wasn't a disease). Mine two mollies gave me 24 and 8 within a couple days of each other. Gravel+plants/decor+not many adult fish = most are in good shape to survive

Well for some reason my pregnant Molly died. I don't know if she was too stressed or what. The male Molly kept bumping her and bugging her. Could that be the cause? All my other fish are doing great.

Seeing how you just started a tank three weeks ago is it possible it wasn't fully cycled? I'm sorry about your fish

She might have been stressed out from the male, or just the pregnancy.

Sorry about your molly
