I have a 10 gal
tank with a 2 mollies, lyre-tail, platy and 2 fancy guppies as well as a Chinese algae eater. 2 weeks ago one of my mollies died. I noticed some of my fish were flashing. I purchased some aquarium salt and copper sulfate because I thought it was ich or velvet.
A week ago the platy died. Since the molly and the platy were doing really well up until the day they died I thought that it could have been my Chinese algae eater since he showed a lot of aggression towards the platy and molly.
My fancy guppies and lyre-tail responded well to the treatment. No one is flashing and no spots developed on anyone except for the balloon molly. She has the white spots indicative of ich but also has clear stringy poo (as of 2 days now) is very lethargic and seems to lose her balance. She tips backwards when she stops moving her fins. This has been going on for about 4 days now.
I'm really worried! This is my first aquarium and am feeling really discouraged.
Thanks so much!!
