Hi all, Iím posting a few pictures to see if anyone had seen these white patches/film before. I have since quarantined this sweet molly who I raised from a little fry, so any help would be appreciated.
She originally looked like this gradually, but always had an appetite. Then she started having buoyancy issues, so I did my best treating her for swim bladder infection in QT (Kanaplex with Metroplex- bath and food; then I added Furan-2. Then, no meds and only meds in food). She hasnít had meds for almost a week now but is so back and forth, and I just donít want to keep throwing these meds at her.
Recent water parameter readings are NH3
0; Nitrite 0; Nitrate 10. I have an ammonia patch and have been doing 50-60 percent WC
ís daily since she has been in this plastic tub because it isnít cycled. I have since added wonder shells due to the low GH
, which are now within livebearer range. And pH is 8.0.
Anyway, she has been touch and go but just started swimming right side up three days ago. However, yesterday she looked worse and had the white film again, so I broke down and gave her the med trio (aquarium co-op) and today, she is swimming upright again. I still have no clue what I am treating thoughÖ There are no fish vets in my area either! I cannot believe these precious beings are under the care of a diy fish keeper making educated guesses.
Anyway, I be so grateful for any help at this point! Thanks.
