For Mollies, what type of water flow is good for them?
I have several tanks of Mollies and wonder what type of water flow are they used to, knowing that my own may never have seen that (store bought and born here). Are they forest fish, and like a slow to nothing flow, or can they live fine in a more intense water flow like given by an AquaClear filter and water stone? My babies have a 20G AquaClear filter there, but it is a good flow, not minor, and they don't seem bothered by it. But I can see them being moved around by it when they swim nearby. There are many plants too, to give them places to hide, rest, and eat. Don't want the babies to suffer from too fast a water flow being small and new (under 3 months). Also have adult Mollies in another tank -- so what general water flow, what type of decor (plants, structures, and substrate) do they like the most?
