Molly laying on Gravel upside down

Postby toxicbiscuitj28 » Sat Apr 16, 2011 12:12 pm

I have 3 molly's, 2 marble and 1 white. Yesterday, i noticed that one of my molly's was laying on the gravel not doing anything. About an hour later he was laying upside down, still not doing anything. I went to bed, woke up at about 3am in the night, went down stairs and there he was dead laying upside down under a piece of driftwood. I have only had him for about a week or so. Can someone explain this to me? because he seemed normal the day before this happened. Thanks.

Whats the size of the tank?
What else is in the tank?
How old is the tank (meaning how long since you set it up)?
What are your ammonia/nitrite/nitrate levels and what is your ph?
Are you mixing any salt into the water?
