Eight definitely could be too much fish if anyone of them is the wrong size. I hope no Dwarf Gouramiss, Silver Dollars, or Angels are in there.

yes it all depends on what kind of fish they are. Like sure you could have 8 fish if they are small, like tetras...but if it was, say, a pirahna or something (or a giant squid ) then it would not work.

Is the tank cycled? If not, that is most likely why the molly died.
