I have o ly one Molly fry, last Molly, since I had previously had to get rid of my mollies.
I noticed a few days ago that she would flash a bit, then stop. I usually change the water in their 2.5 30% every day and every third day 50%.
There is a sponge filter and the temp stays at about 80 degrees. There are two 23 day old guppy fry and the one 24 day old Molly fry.
I just added some floating water sprite, just got it today, though there were peices of a marimo mall in the tank. It's bare bottomed.
I came home after being away for the night, and found more fry in my QT tank! There are seven so far, and they have already been acclimated into the 2.5, for fear the parents would eat them!
The Molly is a Dalmatian, so it's hard to see if there are any spots, or discoloration. No fuzz though. I don't wanna loose this girl! She's definitely a favorite!!
The full water params are unknown, since I saw her flash twice in a row, and immediately did a water change, and didn't even think to fully test, but the ammonia reading I took when I saw it was not zero, definitely not .25. though I'm waiting to test the water again, after it settles, though I might fall asleep, since it's late.
There is also a batch of about two week old pond snails...should I try to remove them? Do they excrete ammonia, or just their waste?
What do you think it is? Posted via Mobile Device
