Possible fungus or ICK? And too many fry?
28 gallon tank cycled nine months ago.
Contains: 3 black mollies, 4 neon tetras, 1 pleco, 3 danios and 2 orange platys, plus a whole slug of baby mollies, at least 20-30, in various stages of life (from brand new to almost an inch long).
Symptoms: The three "adult" black mollies have white stuff on them, looks a bit like ICK, but two of them have what looks like cotton on their skin, and one has it on their eyes. It's not a lot, though. They don't seem distressed in any way, not rubbing against anything. One did have a cut in it's tail fin last week which seems to have gone away now?
Nitrites are high, 3.0 ppm.
Treatment thus far has been 2 water changes (last 2 days) 20% each using aqua safe water conditioner, and adding salt (on a recommendation, approx. 1 Tbsp.), changing the carbon filter.
What else do I need to do? Am I doing any of this right thus far?
And furthermore... what do you do with all the babies??? I just leave them in there to their fate, and so far, they keep living and multiplying, and I don't have the heart to flush them, but since this last huge batch was born is when the white stuff showed up. I can't find anybody who wants them and the fish store won't take them either.
