My mollies have been "fine" in my fresh African tank, since I needed a fish that tolerates hard, alkaline water until I get the N. multifasciatus that will go in there, but I do think sailfins in particular will do better with salt. Salt and planted tanks do not go together, unless you stick with java fern and valisneria. Once I get my multis I will move the mollies and start "salting" them. There have been no problems with them since August, but I do not think this will hold true in the long term.

Here is an interesting discussion about this issue: http://www.aquatic-hobbyist.com/phpB...opic.php?t=452
