Are you the same person who posted the other post that said that you have seen babies in the tank? If so and they are baby mollies I wouldnt add any more mollies give it a month or two and you are going to have way more mollies than you know what to do with because they are worse than rabbits when it comes to breeding.

If you want more mollies then I would just use them because then you can get to pick which ones you like best and then sell or give away the rest of them. but before you move you fish to you 120gal and now that you have moved the babies out of that tank you do need to treat the tank for ich and you prob should treat the other tank with the babies in it since they came out of the tank that has ich. It is a disease that will continue to spread until you treat it.

I am not entirely sure how it happens but you can get it from buying fish from the store that are in a tank with ich or getting fish from you friend that came out of a tank that has ich.

Hi mollie, glad to look actuallt i was. You have white spots, if they look like sugar it's ick and you'll have to be careful as to which treatment you use because you have scaleless fish, i have used and HIGHLY recc Kordon organics ick attack, its safe for all fish and plants. Just follow the directions.Do you add any salt now? I'm not sure if your overstocked, i agre with coty on the pleco.Soon you'll be cycled i'm sure you'll manage for the wait.However if you are OS it would cause the fish to stress=ick.A BW fish in FW=stress. By for now i want to get this up.
