I moved a pregnant lyretail molly to a ten gallon tank with some hornwort thrown in to have her fry.....In the tank is a sponge filter, an air stone,
3 cherry shrimp. I also caught 2 baby fry from my main tank and threw them in there for safe keeping. So then I see white spots on her tail and then day later spots or bumps on her body....the molly was only .80 at the LFS 4th july sale. I didnt want to spend $5 to cure an .80 fish....Now it seems like the bumps and most of the spots went away.
Question: Should i just toss the entire tank(fish, shrimp, plants, etc) -clean the tank and make the tank a QT like i should have? Does ich ever just go away?
the other fish in my main tank are doing great...
