I have a 20 gallon with balloon mollies and when I was siphoning my tank this morning and I walked away for a minute and one of my balloon mollies got sucked inside! I was able to get him out but now he has a red (almost bloody?) mark on his head.
~~Tank background Info~~
My tank right now seems to be falling apart, I've had several fish die. My tank was fine until I purchased a new fish from Petsmart, (I normally only get my fish from a lfs). Anyways since then my fish have gotten an Internal parasite (They have whitish and clear feces) and 2 of them have died, even though I did my best to treat it. Also, all of my fish have Ick too! 1 of my clown loaches died this morning :(
SO, I'm trying to treat my fish for both IP and Ick and now my male Balloon molly is hurt. I was wondering has anybody else had a balloon molly get hurt (bloody/red marks) and heal? And should I treat him differently?
As far as treatments have gone for the IP I have been using Jungle parasite clear tabs and feeding my fish peas every other day.
And for Ick I have been using Jungle Ick tabs as well.
I also do partial water changes and I also have put in Aquarium salt as well as raise my temperature.
Any advice/ experience with a hurt balloon molly would be helpful thank you!
