Is it ich or something else?
I added fish to my tank on Friday (2 black mollies and 3 black skirt tetras). Everyone seems fine except for one of the mollies - yesterday I noted that he was a bit grey and that he was hiding at the back/bottom of the tank. I dropped in some food to see if I could get him to come out for a better look. He came out, but I couldn't get a look at whether or not he had some type of fungus or spots (indicating ich). So, I removed the filter and added Melafix. He's not as grey today, but there are spots...I think (he just won't be still for me to get a good look at him). A couple of years ago I had an issue w/ ich and used "Ich Away"...don't remember if I got good results or not....need some advice on how to proceed so that everyone else doesn't get infected (if it's infectious) and so that I can "save" this fish from doom.
I've read about adding salt and upping the temp....Will that work in my tank? I've got a 30 gallon tank w/ danios, mollies, platies, and tetra.
Thanks for any input!
