Hello. I'm new to forums, I have a two year old mollie female that has started giving birth to young. I have four babies in my tank, with more on the way. She is pregnant, and she has started showing signs of ick. What can I do to help her without hurting the babies? I'm scared to try the traditional "ick away" or the salt route, as I don't know how that will affect the tiny babies in the tank. By the way, it's a 29 tall, and the water temp is a steady 78°. The tank mates are a male mollie, 2 clown loaches, as well as the four babies mentioned earlier. I want to treat my girl (she was my first fish) as well as save her babies. Is there a way, besides quarantine, that will help? I'm afraid it's too late for the rest of the fish, that I didn't catch it in time. So if there is a way to treat them all, even the babies, that's what I'm asking...
