One of my molly fry (about 4-5 months old) has been floating belly up for about a week. She seems to be fine otherwise but can only swim around for a short time before floating to the top again. There is one other molly fry and 2 African dwarf frogs in the tank (10 gallon). I stopped feeding the fish for several days (the frogs I fed because that food is at the bottom and the molly won't go down there to get it). I also increased the temperature a little (78F). These things haven't seemed to help. I have read about the pea trick but does anyone have any ideas on how I could feed it to the sick fish. She won't go to the bottom to eat it. My tank readings are ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10-20, pH 7.2 (been cycled for about 6 months). Any help would be appreciated.
