I used to keep Sailfins years ago and have had them get 4-5 inches . They breed like crazy , like all live bearers....lol And they like brackish water if I remember right .

I don't think so , but I did not have snails when I kept them . I would just watch and see if he bothers the snails . Do some research on the Mollies and Good luck!

Yup it's a male Green Sailfin Molly I think. Depending on where you got him you might want to check on whether they used salt in the tank or not. Some do, some don't. He *shouldn't* bother the snails but since he's a veggie eater if the babies around plants they may just become an accidental snack
