Sick Molly - Please help
My partner and I have a 2 month old tank with 5 Molly’s (all female), 3 Molly babies and 6 neon tetras. I’m a bit scarce on tank details as it’s more my partner’s labour of love!
One of our balloon mollies recently died - however prior to this happening we surprisingly discovered Molly babies (we had no idea any were pregnant) and therefore wondered if this one died after giving birth. Especially as she hadn’t seemed unwell (ie. was still waiting, swimming’s about) and we just woke up one morning to find her deceased.
The 6 neon tetras were added about 2 weeks ago (after the above death and birth). In the last couple of days one of the adult Molly’s has become very lethargic, lies on the bottom of the tank, isn’t eating - but then very occasionally will swim crazily. It maybe also looks like one fin so moving faster or more frequently than the other. The other Molly’s are eating and moving around but seem to maybe be swimming around less fast or frequently. I’ve attached her picture. Part of me thinks her coloring is very similar to when we purchased her, but having done some more reading I’m wondering if the white is Ich or velvet. She also seems to be on a bit of a lean to the left when lying on the rocks.
We do have a terrible snail infestation that we are trying to get rid of but it’s hard and they breed incessantly! Could that be causing her to be unwell?
I don’t have all the specifics at re water testing etc other than to say it was all normal at the most recent testing. This is our first tank and all had otherwise been going really well. So any help or tips would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
