I've just had to clove oil one of my molly's who was in obvious trouble. He had been fine earlier today, swimming round etc, but tonight I saw him at the front of the tank, sitting on the gravel and stuggling to swim.

I caught him in my hand, couldn't see any obvious problems with him, and returned put him in a small container while I did a 50% water change. I was due to do the water change last weekend but didn't and although the stats had stayed perfect, I thought it might have been something to do with that. Also put the bubbles on to add extra 02 to the tank, just in case it was needed.

Returned to molly to the tank, but no change and it was obvious that he was not going to improve so I did the deed.

I am worried now in case there is a link to the other deaths I have had recently, and dont know if there is anything to do about it except watch and see what happens.

Aww, Diana - so sorry to hear this. That's three now in the last few weeks isn't it? Sad

If I was you, I'd dose the tank with something like eSHa 2000 - it might not save the fish that are already sick but it might prevent any others getting ill. Crying or Very sad
