Edit: when I double checked my info, I find some sites that list a broader acceptable pH for these kids. So maybe it'll be okay. But I think their natural habitat is 6-6.5.
I've taken a closer look too, and when it comes time to add this species to our profiles I will probably suggest a fairly acidic pH. The natural waters are mainly peat swamps with near-zero hardness (this is significant) and pH 3-4. Though it is also found in clear waters. I would have to go into this more thoroughly, as I always do for the profiles. But at this point since there are molly in the tank and they would never last in such water, I would tend to agree that this is not a good match.

This whole issue of fish being adaptable bothers me. But that's another whole topic.
