I've just started my tank 3 or so weeks ago. Today I woke up and found that one of my fish was dead and was stuck to the filter by the suction. Is it because of the white slime that appeared on the filter? I cleaned the filter once a week using the aquarium water that was taken out when I do the cleaning. The slime has been there since week 1 so i never thought it was a problem as it comes off when I clean the filter. The other fishes are completely fine and would normally swim right to me when I come close to the tank except for that one that died. My fishes are 2 cremecicle lyretail molly, 2 orange platy(now 1), and these other two that can live with mollies(cant remember what they were). Also should I get another or is it fine for there to be only 1 platy.
