I want some occasional live food for Anemone. So I planned to introduced a pair of Molly fish (Poecilia sp.). Yesterday I brought a male and female of molly. They need to acclimatize before introducing in a marine tank. Here is the process:

I taken a bucket and a tubing use with Glucose bottle. Inserted one end of tube in bucket and another in marine water tank.

Started the water in slow speed so that a few drops of saltwater per minute mixed in freshwater.

After filling bucket with marine, I released fishes in marine tank. Now they are swimming in marine water without any problem.

They start chasing to each other.

Wow I knew mollies are brackish water fish but didn't know they could withstand being in a marine tank.

Also sir the acclimation method you've used is called drip acclimation method. We use it for shrimps.

You can also keep some other fishes like as Guppies, Scat, Mono angels in fully marine setup. I have also kept mono angels in fully marine tank in past.

Mollies are not released as a PREY for anemone. Although their offspring will be consider as prey.
