Last night I noticed one of my 4 Mollys didn't seem too good. Not moving around much, looked thin compared to rest and kept doing a shimmy or shiver .

I isolated it, fed it (it ate) and left it till the morning when it looked much more lively. When o got back home I reintroduced it thinking maybe it had missed out on some food but again it's seems lethargic, slow and doing a shimmy.

I've watching him for ages to try and spot any illness or parasite but other than looking like an empty belly I cannot see anything.

My water tests are all within safe limits and I'm changing 3rd water ever week. All my other stock are fine.

Have you a test result for ammonia please? Also what size is the tank? What stock is in there? How long has the tank been set up?

Came down this morning and it was curled over on the bottom of the tank not moving. I removed to separate tank and it moved a bit, don't think it will last the day.
