 Hello  all
                   I've  maintained  a  5  liter  i.e  1.5  Gallon  aquarium  three  years  back  and  did  well  without  a  dieseas  .  Even  the  offspring  of  bubble  molly  did  very  well  .
 I've  stopped  it  and  now  after  two  years  started  again  and  for  the  first  time  I  got  Ich  (White  spots)
 
 I'm  treating  them  with  green  drops(Malachite  green)  with  only  1  drop  every  alternate  day.  IS  this  DOSAGE  OKAY?
 Before  this  ick  came  they  used  to  swim  happily  but  now  staying  at  the  surface  or  at  the  bottom  of  the  tank  and  SLUGGISH!!!!!!!!!  Sad   Sad   Sad  
 Yesterade  one  of  my  swortail  passes  Sad  
 I'm  aerating  the  tank  for  long  time  and  i  hope  will  help  to  some  extent  
 
 Fortunately   Black  molly  is  pregnant  and  Unfortunately  it  had  white  little  spots  on  it  too  .  
 As  i  cant  see  GRAVID  SPOT  behind  (black  molly)  HOW  can  i  find  out  when  its  gonna  FRY?
 
 Thinking  of  treating  the  water  with  salt  and  change  water  every  two  days  50%  of  it
 How  much  of  salt  do  i  need  to  add  to  my  5  liter  aquarium!!!!!!!
 
 PLease  Help   Shocked  
 Thank  U

 Your  tank  is  way  too  small  for  the  fish  you  have.
 
 Add  3tsps  of  rock  salt.

 your  tank  is  too  small
 then  the  moment  u  started  treating  the  tank  the  bb  are  dead  and  now  your  tank  is  highly  spiked  thus  causing  more  grief  to  the  fish  and  thus  they  are  dying
 
 once  u  started  adding  meds  i  think  it  would  be  more  prudent  to  do  a  little  more  frequent  water  changes  than  what  u  used  to  do  earlier

 Like  is  there  any  rule  of  thumb  
 and  what  kinda  of  fishes  are  Good  for  tank  of  that  size   which  not  vulnerable  to  stress  and  diseases...  Generally  every  fish  do  but  the  ones  which  are  more  resistant  
 
 Anyways  Currently  i   Have  
 2  black  mollies  ,1  is  pregnant
 2  dalamation  mollies
 2  platys  
 2  small  danios  zebras
 two  small  ANACHARIS  plants  (Are  these  the  culprits  )
 Some  of  the  fishes  were  still  scratching  there  bodies  with  stones  
 
 All  fish  were  small  and  thought  were  gonna  fit  in  ....
 
 
 Well  this  forum  is  regarding  Diseases  and  Cure  but  please  help  me  with  Water  Change,  ANACHARIS  PLANT  ,  Are  lights  mandatory  etc  etc  additional  care  
 
 Thank  You  once  again   Smile   Smile

 For  the  above  list  of  fish  i  think  a  10-15g  tank  would  be  the  best  and  especially  for  the  danios,  the  tank  should  have  a  big  footprint  considering  their  active  behavior  
 
 about  the  plants  i  have  no  clue  whatsoever
