|mollies in a salt water tank?|
my friend wanted to start a salt water aquarium but has 3 mollies left and he wants to know if the mollies could live in hard core salt water if not so he could wait till they die
>>>>>>a learning experience as an aquarist can be fun but you must be ready to take and obey advice and criticism but most of all be patient<<<<<<<

mollies are freshwater ONLY.

Freshwater only isn't even right, mollies originate in brackish waters. I've never kept them, but I've heard they do better in brackish water than freshwater.
I've only ever seen sailfin mollies in saltwater, though, so at least I can't confirm I've seen your normal Poecilia sphenops in full saltwater.
The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.

That is more then my father in law does. The fish will be fine. They will even breed in salt water.
