Hello, two days ago I bought new fish from PetSmart. I was going to to go PetSuperMarket, but I forgot that they sell tattoed Mollies which I am highly against! Anyways, the molly tank at PetSmart wasn't that great.. One of the fishes was shimmying, and another one was staring at the filter. The tank didn't look all that healthy to me. So, I bought two female Dalmation short finned mollies and two yellow male guppies. Just today after I got home from the bank, one of my mollies died! The fish seemed perfectly fine this morning, no bumps, scratches, or anything on it's body. However, when I first got it, it was hiding more often than the other fish and it wasn't eating. Did this fish die from too much stress? That's the ONLY symptoms I found with the fish. Tomorrow, I will replace about two gallons of my water with a new one and I will rinse out the filter. The fish I have now all seem perfectly fine and are showing NO Signs what so ever of any diseases.
2 Dalmation Mollies, 1 is new, the other is 2 years old
3 Emerald Cory Catfish
2 Yellow Guppies, both new
My Tank setup:
10 gallon fully cycled
Heater that keeps the tank at a constant 78F
Plenty of hiding places.
I didn't even think about their 14 day return policy before I flushed the fish... oh well :/
