I have a question about balloon mollies in my frag tank.

I have a frag tank that is getting full of hair algae quickly. I have balloon mollies that are already acclimated to saltwater. Can I add them to my tank to fix the problem or is this a bad idea with all of the corals in there? Do balloon mollies eat a lot of algae and will they harm my corals?

They won't hurt your corals. They are not efficient though. I wouldn't expect them to eat very much hair algae.
