i have had him for about a week. the tank is a 55 gallon, started about three weeks ago, i have the one mollie and two danios, and about 6 or 7 small goldfish. i know the goldfish will get larger quick, so they will be transfored in the not to distant future. hope some of this helps, thanks for all replies.

They don't require salt unless they were adapted to salty conditions. Poecilia velifera probably will.
