Hi, welcome to AA! Thanks for joining!

Unfortunately, your tank is too small for all of those fish. If I did my calculations correctly, your tank is about five gallons. I believe a Molly needs a 20 gallon tank, and your shark needs a 55 gallon.

Welcome..... sadly, redsea is correct. Your fish will not survive in that tank. Hope you can arrange either a much larger tank or more appropriate species for your tank.

Yes, I'm sorry, it's still too small for the shark.

You can keep the neons and the mollies, but the shark has to go.
