I think only a couple. unlike guppies (which is what I have) they get bigger and need more room.

EDIT* I just looked at their profile, and they need 20 gallons. it didnt say for how many fish, but I will assume a trio (1 male and 2 females).

Mollies get to be 3-4 inches big, I think... they don't belong in a 10. You'll end up with water quality issues.

Not to mention problems with swim space...you'd be better off with guppies.

If your heart were set on a molly, you could get by with one or two imo.... they may not be very happy in a 10 gallon though. Mollies LOVE to always swim.

If you are really good about water changes you could get away with a couple but they would be happier in a bigger tank. The problem with Mollies is the have lots of babies.

I have the mollies already. 4 females and 3 look pregnant. I was wanting to put them in a bigger tank but there's not much room in my lr.

Lol... um, why ask the question if you already have them? Or were you thinking we'd say you could have more than 4?

Oh, a 30 would be great for a community tank.
