Sick Molly

I have had a sick molly for probably a good two weeks now. Sheís a Dalmatian and I thought she had swim bladder because sheís side ways at the top of the tank and canít swim up right AT ALL. Itís been like this for a while, I tried to feed her peas hoping that helped but it hasnít yet. I was reading about Epson salts so I may do that as well but itís strange because she also has extremely red gills. Iím not sure whatís wrong with her or how to treat her! I donít want her to suffer anymore please help!

Have you tested your water? Molly's like alittle aquarium salt added to the water. Is the tank planted? And is she eating at all?

Havenít tested the water but Iíve done water changes since and it hasnít done anything. She only eats if I hand feed her because she canít swim well enough to get food but she has an appetite. My tank isnít planted either

Are her fins clamped? Maybe add some conditioner with slim coat... How long have you had her? Are her scales raised at all? Boated belly, pooping still? Sorry just wanta help if I can.

I'd diffently test the water first. Could be an ammonia spike. If the gills are red that's usually signs of ammonia. bigger water changes could be needed. With high levels of ammonia might have to do a few big water changes. Tank is cycled? Just my guess on this. Still could be something else. Like swim bladder disease.
