it will be in your filter,uaually in a bag,it's black,
you don't sound thick at all !!!!!!
don't worry, :)
i'm sorry i forgot to ask....
what filter have you got ?
is it one on the inside of your tank,or a canister one
on the out side ?
what tank is it,and how big ?
and if you have a spare hospital tank take her out.

I'm afraid the rest could be infested with intestinal parasites hence my advice to treat the whole tank with Metro.:)

congrats. Do you add salt for your mollies? Mollies should have some salt in their tank, im not sure how much but it should be near brackish water conditions.

I wouldn't go up to brackish conditions or anything close to it but I've always kept a little bit of salt in with my livebearers. It's a near-universal reccomendation due to the variety of positive things it does for the fish. And yes before someone posts that some kinds of fish can't handle aquarium salt I am well aware of it and I'm talking about salt addition in the magnitude of 1tsp per 10 gallons which will be tolerable by almost all commonly kept community fish.
