Moly help


Recommended Posts

I've come across this problem with my black molly as well. Doing salt baths seamed to help for a while, but I unfortunately lost him. Hopefully since yours has had some medication in him for a while he'll have better chances than mine. I'm sure you know mollies are brackish water fish, so if you put him in a pot with 1 gallon of water, and slowly add about 5 teaspoons of salt, the salt will hurt whatever fungus/bacteria is growing on him, but not the fish himself. (slowly is key, obviously you don't want to shock the poor thing). Even if it turns out it's an issue with his slime coat, salt always helps.
