is it a good sign that my month old molly that i got yesterday is up at the top of the tank alot today...I knw i have so many questions, I just want to make sure its ok, and can't sleep beside a fish that could possibly be in trouble. He is swimming fine...and its true also that they sleep and are more stagnant...well how does a healthy fish sleep?

oh also i was reading about dwarf puffers can't seem to find information on them but i know they are freshwater..anyone know how big they get and how many galoons they need. I htink they are also aggressive too, right?

the molly on top of the water can mean amonia in the tank check your amonia , as far as the dwarf puffers i have read that all they need is 5 gallons of water and also they dont get over 2 or 3 inches so i have read

Have a look at this: www.dwarfpuffers.com, copy and paste it.
Is the molly 'gulping' when it's near the surface? Rapidly moving its gills and mouth near the surface?

ok he is not gulping and is swimming his gills are not going fast at all ....but the fin on his back is down which i know is a bad sign, but i think its like that cuz he is so close to the top of the water

Hi LolaGurl. Very late reply but, to answer your initial post, no, a dorsal fin stuck to body is not a bad sign. My male, for example, doesn't always show his off. On the other hand, if they do show it off a lot, you've definitely got yourself a happy fish (or one feeling romantic, if you know what I mean!)
