Really lol. I would have never guessed that one. Probably not a good idea anyway. Don't stress it.

The bio will make your tank cloudy. That's suppose to be the bacteria.

Yeah apparently the molly can live in fresh brackish or salt lol. In the wild I guess the tide floods where they are with salt so they are constantly going thru different types of water lol
