New To This Site/About My Tank

Hey I am new to this site and I am liking it, I have a 10 gal aquarium since i just started this awesome hobby and i have two short fin gold panda mollies and two twinbar sola swordtails and the are both pairs. There is an onion with some rocks that hod it down an glass pabbles i think that is what they are, and my swordtails just got ICH, uhh makes me mad. I got them a week ago and they just got sick i am treating them in the same tank as the mollies because the mollies seem to be showing the symptoms, just a few hours ago the where at the bottom of the tank(swordtails) and know they seem to be doing fine but the swords still have the grain like things on their bodies. i did water changes and treated them.

Thanks for reading, i know this might not matter to many but just trying to talk about my setup.

When i have questions the usualy end up leading me to this site so i am guesing this must be a realy good site.

Hello and welcome to TFK

Sorry to hear about your ichy fish :( It sounds like you're treating it already so good luck with that.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
