SICK BALLOON MOLLY
I have a white male balloon molly who recently has been lying on the ground, sometimes sideways and only goes up for air. I don't know whwat the problem is, none of the other fish are sick (1 female balloon molly, 2 baby mollies).
10 gallon tank
this happened to one of mine a few weeks ago. sadly mine didnt make it. I am not sure what it is maybe a Swim Bladder Infection but not sure
what can you do about swim bladder infection??
i am not an expert on that stuff check the sticky in freshwater species and compat. general about disease and infections if thats not enough u can always google it or wat for someone more knowledgeable to post
Being deformed as they are, balloon mollies are at much greater risk for swim bladder disease than regular (non-deformed) mollies. Their life expectancy is much shorter as a result. You can treat for swim bladder disease, but I wouldn't be surprised if this became a chronic problem.
