I have heard mollies actually do much better in brackish, but why a fish and not something like a snail?

Nothing eats cyanobacteria as far as I have seen, and you don't ever want to put anything in the refugium that consumes algae. As Hank stated, it's counter productive.
That said, a friend just started a tank with the reef saver rock from BRS and even though he cycled it in a separate container, the fish died when exposed to it. No ammonia was present, so it was not the lack of bacteria. I think this rock can leach something harmful. he mentioned his ph was fine as well, so, not sure what it could be at this point.

Looks good don't mess with it. Don't even look at it. Just put tiger pods in and let it role.
