Mollys and SW?

I saw mollies in a SW tank online. How do you aclimate them to SW? Is it healthy for them to be in SW?

Hello Death...

Mollies come from "brackish" waters. Brackish is a combination of fresh and salt water. You can get Mollies used to salt water, but this can take some time and there's a bit of trick to it. You can buy salt water Mollies at some the chain pet stores too.

Most people only do this to use the mollies as feeders for lion fish, frog fish, and sharks.
