Confusion on treating disease


Recommended Posts

If I have a sick Molly fish and remove him from community tank to hospital tank, should I put any type of "treatment" into the community tank to make sure nothing is spread?

Rubbing on bottom of tank, laying on bottom of tank, not really moving.  Possible pop eye.   He has been with me about 3 months, however, this group was never QT'd.  I did not know about that at the time.  

I have given him the trio (Ichx, Maracyn, Paracleanse in my hospital tank.   

I did a 30% water change on Friday and chemical water checks yesterday and all good.  

Just noticed this AM, I drink my coffee in front of tank and always try to check that everyone is present and ok. 

Just worried about his tank mates.  55gal. tank.


Thanks. any suggestions appreciated.

If you don’t see any behaviors similar to the one I don’t know that I would worry about it. If your tank is small enough a lot of people around here would still treat them all. Depending on species a lot of fish come in with parasites. When I first learned about the trio I dosed my whole tank to make sure everyone was good. 

Now I use salt in my QT with everything that comes in. 

is the QT’d fish eating?
