Problems with my fish...

We have a 55 gallon tank with a cartridge filer, heater, undergravel system, etc etc, recently cleaned with about 28+ fish.

We have two silver mollies- one is fine, the other looks like her lip was torn off or something... its like hanging funny and when looked at from the top is bloody

We dont know if she is sick, was attacked, but either way shes not feeling too good.


sorry if its a bit blurry... fish dont hold stll

Looks like a bacterial infection. I wonder what caused it? We need to treat the problem, not the symptom.

Can you post water parameters? Tankmates?
