    I just purchased two black Molly's and two platies, and I was looking them over before I set them free into my tank. I noticed the one black molly has a white eye. It doesn't look like popeye, or ich. Could she be blind? [​IMG][​IMG] I apologize for the terrible picture. I sat for 10 minutes trying to capture her eye.

    Hi, I would qt her if you have other fish already in the tank (other than those you just purchased). That eye could be damaged but it could also be a bacterial infection that may require treatment or clean water may do the trick!

    I know I should, but I don't have a quarantine tank. Any other ideas?

    Is it going to go in an established tank? If it were me, I might take it back to the store because you really don't want to chance giving others a disease.
