Mollies in blackwater?
Going to do a blackwater setup for my angels, gouramis, and discus but I also have two mollies that currently reside with them, will they be ok in a blackwater environment or should I move them to another tank (which I have another tank available, so not a big deal).

Mollys would be ok but bettas love black water and could work in that tank

No, they will not be okay. In soft acidic environment, they become more prone to infections and become listless. Best keep them separated IMO.

Mollies in a black water environment will develop "shimmies" and will gradually get worse over time. As Lupin said, the acidic, low TDS environment will cause them to go downhill fast.

Cool, thanks for the heads up, I didn't think they could handle it but I wasn't really sure...so thanks for saving my fish!
