Guys my male mollies starts to chase one of the biggest female molly (not pregnant), after feeding and the female fights back. what should I do?

Hi

What ratio of females to males do you have? 3 females to 1 male is reccomend for most livebearers to disperse the males harassing behaviour.

Tank size could be an issue too. Other than that I wouldn't know what to suggest other than let the fish do their thing.

That's mollies doing molly things, for sure. In addition to having a good female to male ratio, you can also help by creating breaks in the line of sight. You can do this with plants or other types of decoration. Once the female is out of sight, she might be able to get a bit of a break from the males' attention.
