Balloon Mollies vs Frogs

I just recently added 3 balloon mollies to my tank. They seem to be very peaceful and just school together but I heard that they may attack my dwarf frogs. Does anyone have any experience with this? So far they just swim over him but I don't want them to potentially harm him.

hi mutt, i have 4 balloon mollies along with a frog and they have never bothered him. he usually hides but wen he is out exploring none of the fish take much notice of him so im sure u have nothin to worry about!! :)

hello mutt i have a frog in a mixed comunity tank and the fish dont care if hes there or not :)

or snails
Thanks, that is reassuring to know. They haven't touched either frog so I'm relieved on that point but now...

What about snails?

There seems to be something wrong with the mystery snail, very sluggish which he usually is not. His overall actions seem bizarre. It seemed like a mollie picked at him once or twice but it was hard to tell what he was doing. I'm wondering if that is what he was doing, or if it may be because the snail is ill they are picking at him but are not actually responsible for whatever is wrong with him. If that makes sense. So anyone kept balloon mollies and snails?

I've kept the snails before and the fish tend to pick at them from time to time regardless of the health of the snail. Never seemed to bother my snails very much.

Yea they are, but they still like to eat lol I've noticed that some peaceful fish will mistake non-fish as food. But they never bothered the frogs, it was just a rumor I heard and has appeared to be false. They didnt seem to bother the snail until last night and it appeared as such but it was a little hard to tell. This morning, the snail is dead. Part of his shell turned from gold to black. Very weird. Any ideas what happened to him?
