Red Vein through Tangerine Molly

    My Tangerine Molly has developed a red vein running through his body from head through tail. Is this some kind of disease? If so, any suggestions on treatment?

    Welcome to Fishlore!

    In order to help you better, can you attach a pic and provide more info?

    Tank size, tank mates, water parameters (pH, temp, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates)?

    Are you sure it's not just a well-pronounced lateral line?

    I m relatively inexperienced and do not know. I have 2 tanks. The one the molly with the red line is in is 37 gallons. The ammonia is 0, the nitrates are 20 and the nitrites are at 0. I have 2 plattys and 5 assorted mollies in the tank.
