Mollies do like a little salt in their water. About 1Tbsp for every 5g should suffice. Do not use table salt, use aquarium salt.
this is absolutely right however, mollies can also do well without salt, whereas other tankmates will not do well with salt on a long term basis. the tetras and angel will not tolerate it on a long term basis but will be fine while you are medicating for a short time.
basically, if keeping mollies alone, or with other livebearers for example, add salt at the concentration herefishy advised, if keeping mollies with other freshwater fish, dont add salt
keep us updated as to how your fish are doing
