Your tank is so adorable lol

If I may offer advice?

Your tank could use a little more danios and mollies. They like schools better. But watch out as to not overstock

Actually I change that: Danios definitely love to school, but I think Mollies are good in a 2 or 3 to 1 female to male ratio Sorry mixed my advice,lol

The only problem with a mixed sex mollie situation is what to do with the fry when they breed...

And they WILL breed...

Very true -- I shouldn't really have said anything about themollies, because I know that that is the typical ratio but I am not really sure of the happiness if kept solo.

However, what I say about the danios still stands..

yes they like salt you can aslo make them saltwater fish if you add a little bit of salt every so often until its at a saltwater level and if you don't have a lot of hiding places and a small tank like you do you shoudnt have to worry about fry as the parents will eat them right I know tahts true with guppies isn't it true with all livebearers or am I mistaken

Livebearers DON'T need brackish water. You CAN use it, but you don't actually need it!

no livebearers don't need brackish conditions but MOLLIES do just because you buy them in fw doesn't mean they aren't bred in brackish water because they are bred in brackish water

Mollies WILL breed in freshwater...

My neighbour has thousands of them, all bred from the same pair, and he has NEVER used salt

very nice... mollies like slightly brackish water but it isn't necessary... if you have them in a communitiy tank like that it isn't reasonable to make the water brackish... Freshwater will suffice for mollies...

that's interesting I never knew mollies could BECOME saltwater hmm.... has anyone else heard of this?
