Problems with my fish...
We have a 55 gallon tank with a cartridge filer, heater, undergravel system, etc etc, recently cleaned with about 28+ fish.

We have two silver mollies- one is fine, the other looks like her lip was torn off or something... its like hanging funny and when looked at from the top is bloody

We dont know if she is sick, was attacked, but either way shes not feeling too good.


sorry if its a bit blurry... fish dont hold stll

Looks like a bacterial infection. I wonder what caused it? We need to treat the problem, not the symptom.

Can you post water parameters? Tankmates?

3 mollies (included that one)
a bunch of guppies (male and female)
a bunch of guppy babies (male and female)
a sword tail
2 adult mickey mouse platies, (one male, one female)
6 or 7 baby mickey mouse platies (mostly girls)
2 plecos
2 bleeding hearts,
2 danios
2 other platies (not sure of sex or type..)

The parameters are completely normal- our meter thingy says so
