Mollies in Reef Tank

I've been meaning to get back to Saltwater City in Bellevue, they usually have some mollies in their copper tanks they've already acclimated.  You might check stores around you, especially one that has QT tanks anyways. It's not a whole lot more work for them to acclimate while they're doing QT. I think the last time I bought one it was like $5 or something. Maybe high for a mollie, but dirt cheap for one that's been acclimated and  for any SW fish...let alone one that's spent a month in copper

Yup, definitely worth the cost if someone wanted them.  I know some think it's going backwards to freshwater fish, but they do a good job and it's unusual to see them in a salt tank.  I've have found they are less stressed if I spend a week or more acclimating.   I've even had babies from my pair but they get eaten with a few days

Not me. I've never had one survive dropping in, or a single day of acclimating.  Have any babies with yours?

Interesting. How long does it take for them to die? No babies here as I never keep mollies for more than a month (eventually they make friends with my wartskin angler). But I have been considering one for my reef
