    Eight definately 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.

    what do you mean by cycled?
    the other fishes seems to be really happy
