Help! Black mollie dead
3 days ago we found 2 black mollie babies, they didn't make it as its a fairly new tank (1 week) and we didn't have a place to put the babies as we noticed at 11:30pm so needless to say they were eaten.
We have a frog, a bloated orange mollie, a glass fish, a ghost catfish and a red tail shark and a bala shark. The orange mollie is new as we had a Dalmatian male mollie and he was very aggressive and going after the black mollie female. The day we exchanged and brought the orange one home is the night we found the babies.
Everyone was getting along great, we assume it was the black mollie that gave birth but I guess we really don't know it could have been the orange one as we don't know what to look for.
Anyway all day they were great, we feed them twice a day, morning and night. I just came home from work at 9:00 and hubby fed them at around 7:30-8:00 all was well. I get home and my poor Molly was dead at the bottom of the tank!!!
Does anyone have any ideas as to what happened??? I burst into tears (silly I know), hubby said she was fine an hour ago.
Like I said we only saw 2 babies, about 5mm long, I don't know how many she had I they even came from her. We have a 10 gallon tank, filter and heater, 3 statues and a live plant, my profile pic is our tank. Are more going to die? I just don't know what is happening...
Oh yeah, we keep the temp around 75.
Thank you in advance for any help with this...,
