How to keep male from bothering Pregnant Molly?

GamingWidow

We inadvertantly got a male and a female molly for our small thank (5.5 gallons). She is pregnant, and has delivered 2 fry already. However, the male is aggressive and keeps pestering her, not allowing her to do what she needs. We're trying to isolate her, in a makeshift breeding box (we were caught off guard and don't have the funds for a real one). Will this help? Is there anything else we can do to try to keep the male from pestering her?

Honestly the best thing you can do is separate them as much as you can the male just wants to get the female pregnant again as soon as she’s done having babies that’s why she’s bothering her. Make sure the fry have somewhere to hide they need to be able to hide because the female and the male will eat them

I meant to say he’s bothering her not she’s bothering her
