Skinny molly!? lost 2 already?
We started off with 6 molly, 2 male, 4 female. we have had them since November and all was fine and they where breeding up until about 2 weeks ago. I noticed my less dominant male was sluggish and hiding one evening (this isnt normal, even though he was less dominant) by the next day when I got home from work, he was dead.
Then I had 2 females go very, very skinny all of a sudden. One was very weak and was being blown around by the filter so I moved her to a spare tank and she died today. I was treating her with salt and melafix.
The other skinny one is getting weaker and I'm worried I will loose her too, my remaining male and two females seam fine at the moment as do the rest of my fish - even my one remaining molly fry.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? My water is testing fine with the API liquid kit, I have air in there and am doing weekly 50% water changes with gravel vac (as always)
