Swim Bladder, help!!
We had a minor nitrate problem that we've since remedied, but I'm worried that one of the mollies has swim bladder from the stress of it all. She is energetic and eating, but having a hard time controling her swimming/balance. From what I've read it sounds like swim bladder. After balancing our water chemistry, doing water changes, etc., I thought it might work itself out. I stopped feed, a suggestion I read, and put in some peas. She went for it wholeheartedly whens he could swim downward. Now she can swim in a circle and seems entirely frustrated. I have been handfeeding her peas for two days...I put the pea on the end of a toothpick and she comes right for it. Well, she makes a few circle tries, but then eats well. We also threw in some salt to help. Any suggestion? Is there anything we can do? I feel so bad for her...
