    The Betta and snail are Okay but not the mollies

    Mollies need 29 gallon to live well.

    5 gallon can support one single betta and maybe like 2 nerite snails or some red cherry shrimp (depends a lot on the betta's personality though).

    I'm sure you've asked this kind of question numerous time before and if you're looking for someone to say that there are more things you can put in a 5 gallon, you probably won't find any here.

    People in this forum care too much about the long term wellbeing of their aquatic pets to suggest anything else for such a tiny tank.

    Only the betta and the snail will be okay in a 5 gallon, but certainly no mollies.

    I have said this in a previous thread of yours but I'd like to say it again, if you really want other fish with your betta then you really need a 10-20 gallon, and even then only certain species of fish will work, mollies not being one of hem.
