In his defense mollies are brackish if remember correctly and can be drip acclimated to full salt just like some fresh water puffers but its a mook point. Shouldn't be done in my opinion. Anyway lets close this thread since its just a sad event and he won't let anyone help him.

In a way yes. They can be brackish fish not full on sw fish. Puffers as they grow need salt to live so they are different.

mollies can live in full marine setups and in fact have less disease when living in full salt setups

We all want you to do the right thing for the fish. That's it for me on this thread. Good luck to the OP you will learn one day.

Success is measured with time in marine aquariums, keep and eye on the tang and make sure it doesn't stress itself out. Keep it feed with correct diet and when it looks too large for the tank please upgrade to a much much larger aquarium or rehome it.
