I do not, but our water in this area is naturally hard, so I am not concerned about the water not having enough salt for the mollys.

None of the other molly's exhibit this behavior, just this one.

Just wanted to share that wiring up a separate power supply for the moonlights in order to allow them to stay on when the daylights are turned off by a timer is definitely the way to go. Thought I...

LED lighting with timer that ISN'T marineland

Can anyone recommend an LED lighting system with a built-in timer to allow for Moonlight to be on at night that isn't Marineland? Been through 3 now, they all stop working after 6 months.

Thanks!
