Fresh water fish in salt tanks

Anyone able to do this? I know you can sometimes get black mollies to live in salts, but could you have like a 10 gallon tank and switch a bunch of guppies slowly over to salt? then put them in the salt tank.

I have had 7 balck mollies in my SW tank for 2 weeks. They are thriving, one of them is about to have babies!

I am using them to cycle my tank, and they have been fine.

I don't know about guppies, though.

Although I never did it, I've read that it can be done with guppies.

Oddly enough that's the question I kept asking myself.
