I have had this molly fish for almost a year and a month ago he started having trouble swimming. He would swim on his side and he couldn't swim right. I put him in my hospital tank by himself and I contacted my local fish store. The first store told me it sounds like swimmers bladder and that I needed to stop feeding him, put some salt in the water, and then do a water change every 4 days. Well a month has gone by and he can't swim at all now. If I feed him (peas) it has to be by hand and he can't keep much down. He looks like he's losing some color and on one side his gold/black color is looking like it's fading to a white color. He's also developed a couple of small and I'm not sure if that's or if it has something to do with something else. He came out of a healthy tank with other molly fish and platty fish who are all doing fine. He's so week that when you stick your hand in the water the water movement moves him around. Any suggestions or thoughts as to what this could be and what I can do?
