my molly is not acting like other mollies, help.
Bought four mollies from local pet store about 20 miles away or so (5 Days ago) :-)
Three of the Four look fine with one pregnant.
FYI Three female one male.
So, problem is is that one of the Dalmatian female is skinny unlike the others.

It surface skims and bottom dwells at times. Mostly surfacing at one spot for two to three minutes.
One day I came home and thought that it had jumped out or died because I couldn't find it.
Found out it had been hiding under my treasure chest when I lifted it up :lol:
Thought it was dead when it came up but it was still alive.
It resembles one of them pike platy's or mollies I've seen on a 500 types of Freshwater fish book.

Not sure if I should return it because I have a "14 Day Return" thingy, or keep it until something happens.
It would be great if anyone had suggestions or comments.

Random question,
Whats a Trackback?
Just saw it below this.

This is really not the right place to post... This is for articles.

To answer your question, yes. I'd probably return it. It's definately ill.
Trackbacks are to link other articles I believe.

Where should i post this? under tropical fish diseases, livebearers, or anything else? Thanks for the top I probably will return it.

Livebearers could work, but I'd go for the tropical fish diseases forum, located here

Inbstead of reposting, I would look at the bottom of the screen and see if any moderators are online and just have them move this topic there... Byron is usually online regularly... Other active ones are 'Aunt Kymmie', and 'Bearwithfish'
