My balloon molly is a bully

Baker843

I have three balloon mollies: two are large And we got them in July And one is tiny and we just got her. Our big orange girl has been attacking our big grey girl. I have no idea why she’s picking on her. She follows her and constantly picks and attacks. Is she just a bully or possibly pregnant? I’ll post pictures of the two bigger sisters. Sorry for poor quality.

How big is the tank? I'm pretty clueless on livebearers but if its only a few fish together in close quarters, aggression can start with many fish.

If there's still aggression in a large tank I would try to add more fish to disperse aggression between a group or create hiding areas such as plants or wood for fish to retreat too and break the line of sight from the aggressor.

We have a ten gallon. From what I’ve read that should be ok for them??? They have lots of plants and places to hide.
