Thats not a real good pic to tell. but they have a few of those symptoms they list. Curved or crooked spine, they eat but very little. They stay at the bottom all the time. No scale problems or anything.

Also had another question...how old do fry have to be before I can tell their sex??? My oldest ones have to be 5 or 6 wks old now. Still pretty small but I can see their bottom fins real well but all of them look female still at this point.

I really hopes its NOT Fish TB!!! They really dont have most of them symptoms just crooked spine is all. Other wise from what that article says it will infect my other fish and possiblely me!!! However now that I think about it, it started happening when I brought 2 fish home from walmart!! Thats 2 times now I have gotten all my fish sick from walmart fish so im NEVER buying from them again!! Hopfully I removed them fast enough!! None of my guppies seem to be showing signs and its been over 2 wks so im hoping for the best!!

Walmart is the worst place to get fish. I made the mistake two times of getting algea eaters and putting them in my tanks with put QT and I lost all of my fish in the tank. I learned a painful exspensive lesson from that now I never get fish at Walmart.

acutaly i think they have VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES!! Thats what my fish look and acted like!! So I need to research my food for them! Going to the pet store tomorrow. Any suggestions on the best foods for guppies and molies?? Like maybe from frozen food or can a dried shrimp work just as well?? As of right now I feed them a tropical fish flake, they get a slice of cucumber once a wk and then I change it out for a fresh one(which they all have come to LOVE I think) and about once a wk I give them peas cause you all suggested it for swim blader and they all seemed to LOVE that as well so I just kept doing it.

The Omni Gold is good food, the fresh veggies are great to you can also steam a baby carrot until is soft but not over smushy and they will like it as well.
