Don't know about Mollies but I have had Platys in with mine without any problems. The Angels enjoyed snacking on the platy fry
I wouldn't think the mollies would be a problem but the angels would eat their fry also.

Angels will certainly NOT eat the mollies as mollies are too large to fit in angels' mouths, lol If the mollies do not nip at other fish's fins and if they're peaceful fish, then it's certainly OK to mix mollies with angels. Do mollies nip at other fish's fins?

They don't nip other fish's fins unless they are a female livebearer.

You can but it's best for mollies to be in slightly brackish conditions to avoid shimmies, ich, and other illnesses.

You should have more mollies than angles, the angles like Snacking on the FRY
