Yeah thats what i was thinking but i was just wondering if anyone has had one that got to 6 or close. I'm thinking of getting sailfins when i get mollies and i only have a 20G and i want to have at least 3 and 3, 6" fish would be pushing it even without other fish in there

A Harlequin Sailfin Molly will get near to 6"

Most mollies would be happy with lots of plants in the tank which in a small tank is restrictive to keeping the large species.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

yeah i will take that into consideration when i do get some. i might end up getting just the regular kind. maybe one day i'll be able to get a 50 and see if i can raise some 6 inchers .

Yes if they are live plants. Try to avoid it.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

Yes josh but it still boosts salinity levels so you could use it.
