Could be a swim bladder problem try to feed them some peas peel the shell off and feed them the inside.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Serisouly?? That will fix their swim bladder?? I put a cucumber in there like everyone has told me to do. The babies are eating it but no one else seems interested. Do I just put it in the water?? I dont think they will go after it. How do I force feed it?? lol

I know it helps bettas but I have never had to do it to a mollie you could try catching them and putting them in a cup and putting it right in front of them and they may go for it at least thats what my betta did. ; ) Good luck with them.

Could you just see the OP with a pair of tweezers trying to force the fish mouth open.
