hello all.

i hope to get pics by this evening.

i have 7 mollies in total, and 3 are orange. one of the orange mollies was never as bright orange as the others, but it seems as if it is losing more of its color. i was given alot of misinformation from pet store when i started this tank and to be honest im not sure it ever cycled properly. everybody in the tank seems happy and healthy including the mollie in questions. no change in behavior, it swims and eats exactly like all the others. nothing appears to be wrong. what i mean by this is, if i saw it for the first time today it would appear to be a perfectly healthy mollie, but more of a brown color than orange. i amnot a pro at this, but i don't see any red/flared gills, nothing that looks like ick either. other than the fading of color, i would have to say it is as healthy as can be.

i am not home now, but when i get home i will update with water parameters and hopefully a picture as well.
