so my bolivian ram has settled nicely into his new home! he has set up shop in a little cave created by driftwood, and he has started to show color! a nice black stripe over his eye and a black spot with pink tipped fins! and he is interacting beautifully with the school of serpae tetras. they chase each other all over the tank.

hmm...

first off...when a mod sees this could you make the previous post a new thread? i don't mean to be a jerk, but it's kinda thread jacking...

BUT, from the sounds of it, your mollie has ick, which is easily curable if acting quickly.
1) your temp...82-84...for one to two weeks. this will help immensely as ick spores cannot live at these high temperatures

2) perform daily gravel vacuumings. ick is perpetuated by spores. these spores fall to the bottom. so by vacuuming your substrate, you are removing the spores...or at least a lot of them

3) if this fails...and i hate to say it...go get an ick medication. look on the fish disease threads to find a good one.
