I was under the impression that mollies are usually not an aggressive fish. We have him mixed with a couple swordtails and we had guppies but the molly bullied them and killed them. I noticed that it keeps trying to mate with the other fish, is it possible that not being able to mate with a other fish is causing it to be aggressive? We have a 30 gal tank, water levels are great. I just need some ideas to chill this fella out if possible.

Mollies can be aggressive, but it usually comes down to the individual personality. I have a female who is pretty bossy too lol

Does yours have more mollies around? Perhaps if you dont, adding two or three females may help curb his aggressive attentions

I had a female molly that was bossy too. She didn’t allow other fish to eat the potato or cucumber when she was having the dinner.
When there is a group such thing can be natural imo.
