Question Molly lives but everything else dies

I have had the same molly for 3 years and she has made it through everything. She had 2 sets of children and they have since past. I have tried putting platys in with her but they all seem to die off right away. The water is fine I have tested it multiple times. So what is causing my fish to die off? Except the molly? I can't figure out why this is happening? Any suggestions?

Does she have a name? If not, I suggest Typhoid Mary.

I also can't offer any help sadly, but I second this suggestion.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.

How big of tank is it? I've had one molly before who had to be housed alone or she would torment the other fish to death.
