How do you encourage a Molly Fish to breed?

He i recently purchased two female and one male gold dust molly fish. One of the females recently dropped fry. I have only seen the male attempt to mate with either of them once and I would like to see more fry! Any suggestions?

Hi, don't worry, female mollies tend to stay pregnant their whole adult life and will drop fry approximately every 28 days

Your female can have a few more batches of fry without your male breeding with them. Females can store males s.perm. And with your male, he only needs to have contact with them once, and you're not around all the time, right? 😉
