yes, mollies can be acclimated to SW, they are (if I remember correctly) actually a brackish fish. Start them out in fresh water and daily replace evaporation with SW (this will take a long time, but will be the easiest on the fish) or doing small weekly waterchanges replacing the water changed water with reg SW.

When I started my first tank back in 1995, the LFS recommended mollies to cycle the tank. I know this is bad now but we used 2 black mollies and they ended up living a long time.
