Talking Mollies better than Plecos or Otos *Gasp*

I am seriously starting to consider calling my mollies, brackish alkaline catfish. I love these guys, I feed them 2 times a day alternating between flakes and algae tablets( which they absolutely love) and today I woke to a whole new surprise. My whole tank is completely algae free, I had a little growing on the glass. Not to mention they have completely scrubbed down my filter sponge and it looks as good as new. I've read that mollies like to graze and look for small snacks even after eating but I can't believe that pertains to this level of cleaning. Do you guys think I am feeding them enough? I usually throw some flakes in and stop once they loose interest in them. Afterwards the get these little bellies and all swim to the still moving part of my aquarium where they all swim together digesting the previous meal lol. Point being even though these mollies have been a nuisance these little quirks about them alway manage to pleasantly surprise me.

Rat bellies are a gateway drug...and I'm addicted

well, our community tank is completely algae-free, maybe our mollies are the ones to thank :)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
