Your Mollies would not survive in a Marine Tank. The marine fish would be fine. Mollies are often found in saline waters and it is recommended that 1 to 1.25 teaspoons of non-iodized salt be added to the aquarium water. The common molly is a bit hardier and can be kept in a smaller aquarium, whereas the sailfin mollies are more delicate and need a larger aquarium with plenty of room. The sailfin mollies also do better when kept with other livebearers that can handle a saline environment. Mollies are prone to ich, fungus and other diseases if their environment is not comfortable for them
This will not get your water to Salt Water parameters. Marine Fish are in 1.018 through 1.026 using a refractometer. Mollies, Short-finned Mollies - Sailfin Mollies - Mexican Sailfin Mollies
