Not sure if that applies to mollies, but with cichlids, the more water changes you do, the faster they grow. Some people (usually with discus) go as far as doing 100% daily water changes

You'd want a minimum of 2 inches to be at sellable size. To maximize growth. Use an auto feeder feeding 4x per day, and then 2 feedings by you per day, usually morning and night, whatever works for your schedule of Live foods and frozen foods. 

Then make sure water parameters don't get out of line. The goal is to keep fish eating every 2 hours. This would be for a 12 hour light on cycle.
