Molly with swim bladder #1
I have a female molly which has swim bladder as the fishes tail keeps floating upwards. I am using a swim bladder treatment I got from pets at home and also added some aquarium salt to her tank. Is there anything else that can be used to treat this or is the treatment I am using enough to get this fish better. Any advice on water temperature as the tank is set to 26c ( will it need to be warmer or colder to help with treatment). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Should I move my hillstream loach. #2
I have two fish tanks one120l tropical tank (24c - 25c) and one 60l cold water tank. I recently moved my minnows and platys from the cold water tank into the tropical tank and now the only fish in the cold water tank are two hillstream loaches and wondered if they can also be moved into my tropical tank. If not what can be done with them as I do not want another tank with only two small fish in it.

Balloon molly fins eaten- help #7
I have a male balloon molly in my tank and it looks as though something has eaten the main part of the back tail and part of one of the side fins. The fish is fine in itself is still swimming about but quite unsteady. The fish has been moved to a smaller bowl so no one can get hold of him. Any suggestion on how to treat (will fins/ tail grow back). Also any idea what could have eaten it.

In the tank are
* some scrimps
* other balloon mollies
* ordinary mollies
* some plattys
* one gurami
* some danios
* some glass bloodfins
* some tetras
* two small plecostomuss
*some thi red crabs

Catfish unwell #9
I have two catfish both the same type (not sure what). One of them was af the back with its tail end upwards I though it was dead so I tapped on the glass and it moved so I knew it was still alive. Please could you look at the photo and see what could be the problem. Also would like to know how often I need to water change a 120l tank. Thanks for help in advance.
