Molly do not "need" brackish; in hard water they will be fine. no different that any livebearer, all need medium hard or harder water with a pH above 7.
You know, those might
be platy. Platy and molly will cross-breed, and I came across one aquarist who successfully bred dalmation molly with some platy and got speckled offspring. Not sure what they might be called though..."polly" maybe?
