 Was  reading  online  that  black  molly  can  live  in  brackish  water  and  some  have  acclimatised  it  by  drip  method  to  live  in  full  marine  setup?  Is  it  possible?  
 P.S  I  know  it  sounds  cruel.  Dont  go  ballistic  on  me  please.

 nanomania  :  Even  though  I  am  a  doctor,  I  never  thought  about  using  a  IV  line  drip  regulator  for  controlling  the  flow.  You  are  one  genius  sir.
 Can  you  please  tell  me  the  drop  rate  for  the  process?

 Romi  :  We  usually  calculate  with  drops/minute.  
 Example  30  drops/minute.  Drop  by  drop  means  1  drop/second?   Smile

 Wow  !  Never  knew  that  this  could  be  done  ie  Keep  a  Molly  in  Marine  water.  I  thought  they  could  at  best  maximum  take  only  brackish  water.
 
 I  just  have  some  questions
 
 Will  the  mollies  develop  scales  on  their  body  to  protect  themselves   ?
 Will  they  survive  or  die  over  a  period  of  time  ?

 INTRODUCING  MOLLY  INTO  SALTWATER  TANK  IS  NOT  ADVISABLE,  IT  WILL  NOT  SURVIVE.IT  WILL  DIE  DUE  TO  KIDNEY  FAILURE,ITS  LIKE  INTRODUCING  OURSELVES  INTO  A  GUTTER
