sailfin mollys at bottom of tank
any ideas why both my sailfin mollys are spending most of the time at the bottom of the tank, is it a sign of illness or something else? they are practically on top of the gravel. also does anyone know anything about King British Safe water, is it a better product than Stress Zyme?

sailfins at bottom of tank
found the female and another female black molly dead beside each other this pm .the remaining male sailfin doesnt look too good either, i think i might hav bought in diseased fish in the sailfins, and whatever was wrong they passed it on to the black mollys as well. i just hope its confined to that species and not the rest of the stock.

It would be really helpful if you could give us some more information on your tank, otherwise there's not much help we can give you. If you read this sticky and then post the information, hopefully we can determine where your problem is coming from.

okiemavis/tank info
i am new to this site and unfamiliar with the workings at the moment{a little on the slowhand side!] i thought my tank details were posted every time i asked ???s. Tank is 14.25 gallon capacity running at 26c and contains right now "2 gouramis 2 tetras 2 guppys 1 swordtail 1 platy 1 sailfin molly who doesnt look too good. in the past week 1 have lost approx 5 fish and an getting worried that he rest might follow. had water tested for all agents 2 days ago by very reputable lfs and was told everything was perfect.then as i said, i came in this pm and 2 more fish gone but to be honest neither looked well for the last few days. i did a large water change 3 days ago approx 30%prior to having it tested. is it possible i introduced ill fish to my tank unwittingly and this is what has happened. the est of the fish at the moment apart from the sailfin molly look healthy and appear to be acting normally.this is my first tank and i am a complete novice both to fishkeeping and this site.whats a sticky and is this the right way to reply to same?
