Marine Mollies --> Acclimating & Compatibility

Would a yellow tang and 2 false perculas harass sailfin mollies?

Also, on wet web media I saw 2 opinions, one saying a slow drip of 6-8 hours and another in a QT over a week. Anyone have any experience acclimating mollies to a marine enviornment?

I don't know if this will help but,

I acclimated My Leopard puffer (Tetraodon nigroviridis) to full marine environment in about 8.5 hrs by drip acclimation. He's doing great.

Different Fish but both are labeled as brackish on many sites.

I hope that helps.

Good to know, I have them drip acclimating right now, going on 19 hours (using a heater and a small PH in the acclimation bucket...) Will put them in tonight when the lights go off.


Now I'm thinking the yellow tang might be too aggressive for them tho... Will have to watch them, hopefully the yellow tang hasn't become too territorial yet as it is a recent addition...

That's a great site, thanks Fluff. I looked and found some of that info spread across the net, but nothing that good.

Hopefully the yellow tang will not become an issue aggression wise...

Thanks Again!
