Can somebody tell me whats wrong here.
At first I thought she might have had a fight with somebody but this spot has been there for almost 2 months now and is not getting better,
I tried some meds for a couple weeks but that didnt work either.
now I'm stumped and dont know what to do.
The meds I used were just Tank Buddy's fungus clear.
This all started when her tankmate died from dropsy a few months ago.
She has never been the same since. She's not nearly as active as she used to be. I've had battles with ich on several occasions since then but the ich only affects her. Everyone else in the tank is fine. Then I noticed the spot on her gill and tried the meds mentioned above.
She's had ich 3 times in the last 3 months. I do 50% water changes every Sunday and I regularly check the water for nitrites, nitrates and Phos with an occasional PH check. So I don't think the problem is from poor water quality.
As for the spot on her gill, I really don't know where it came from, There is a little hostility between her and my red tail shark. The shark is deffinately king off this tank. But I don't know if the shark is capable of making such a mark.
She's been like this for a couple months now
and only 1 day after posting this she took a turn for the worse.
She's laying on the bottom of the tank gasping.
It looks like I waited too long to post this.
Pretty sure she'll be dead within the hour.
Have you been adding any aquarium salt to the tank? Mollys need salt in the water.
I have found mollies are fine without salt. I have a ton of them with no salt and they are usually happy without it. However, some find it is beneficial to add. With the gill being exposed, I would be hesitant to add salt.
Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.
