I moved this post out of the tech support forum and into it's own thread in Saltwater Reef Aquaria. You will get more answers here.

I personally would not attempt to acclimate the molly, but I suppose if you do it probably wouldn't be smart enough to know since it's not a part of their natural habitat. And that's assuming you got a wild caught molly

My acclimated mollies were...not bright. I wouldn't have too much faith on it having the instinct to avoid a nem.

I know my maxi mini anemone is very sticky and would probably take any fish that gets near enough. Acclimation of a molly should be done over several hours I have heard from 4 to 24 hours. I saw a lovely golden color molly the other night that was acclimated to full salt and was happily grazing in a frag tank. Another person has some babies that were born in a full saltwater tank for give away so I am sure it can be done successfully. I am considering trying it myself.

To answer your question, yes, there is a chance the anemone will eat the molly. If the molly is curious and swims up to check it out, it may end up a meal.
