Yesterday, I went out and stocked my first-ever aquarium. It's a ten gallon tank with a Penguin Mini filter and a heater.
I put in three mollies, two goldfish, a bristlenose pleco and an African Dwarf Frog to get started with, and I've been feeding the whole lot TetraMin flakes that I had previously.
I noticed earlier today that one of my mollies has a patchy white fluff covering parts of her face, body and dorsal fin. The patches are small, but not so small as is typical of the photos of ich that I've looked at. I must not have noticed when the pet store first netted her out of the crowd. I know it can't be water quality because everything in the tank, including the water, is brand new.
I've been looking at pictures of various diseases and I can't really find anything that really looks like what she has. I'll get a photo of her up as soon as possible.
For now I'm treating the whole tank with Maracyn and aquarium salt as recommended by the store.
What does this sound like to you?
Are all the inhabitants compatible?
Am I feeding them the right stuff? Will the frog get enough to eat?
I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!!! Please help the lost beginner. ;w;
