fish and heater
 
just joined the site and had a quick question. i have a mollie, not sure what specific species, but it is black with a fan tail. it seems to be hovering around the heater, is this a problem?

hes fine. when did u get him?

archrider 01-22-2007 07:58 PM

i have had him for about a week. the tank is a 55 gallon, started about three weeks ago, i have the one mollie and two danios, and about 6 or 7 small goldfish. i know the goldfish will get larger quick, so they will be transfored in the not to distant future. hope some of this helps, thanks for all replies.

do you have salt in that tank? Livebearers require salt

Matt 01-22-2007 08:31 PM

not table salt though...(learned from experience..LOL)

yeah, good point matt, no table salt, buy salt specifically made for aquariums, and vice versa, dont eat aquarium salt :)

They don't require salt unless they were adapted to salty conditions. Poecilia velifera probably will.
