My golden wonder killifish, Sunshine, has never been that outgoing of a fish, unless it's chow time...but she still usually hangs around the front of the tank, and doesn't hide.

She's hiding now.

For the past few days, I thought she was dead, because I couldn't find her anywhere. Today I spotted her, hiding behind some driftwood. She's not coming out still.

I *did* see the male molly attempting to breed with her, but every time he tried that, the killi just swam away.

So what is going on here? Has my molly finally snapped my killifish? I added a female for him, and since then, the killi has been hiding a lot more.

What gives?


Also, my trio of albino cories are rather worrying me. Today one of them was lying on its side, like a loach asleep, and jumped up when I lightly tapped on the glass. I'm not sure if it's the same cory or not, but usually two of them are cruising together, and the third is sitting still--on the gravel, opposite of the filter, just swaying in the current.


Tank stats: 1 golden wonder killifish, 1 balloon molly, 2 black mollies, 2 bristlenose plecos (trying to give one away still, curses!), 3 albino cories. Tons of MTS. Literally; they have reproduced like MAD, and I've started removing them physically.

Water stats:

Ammonia: 0ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 30ppm
pH: 8.4
Cl: 0

Yeah, I found one snail yesterday, found five today.

Any recent changes/additions in the tank? Or did this problem appear out of nowhere?

No new additions, save the female balloon molly, but that was over two weeks ago!

The male molly is currently kicking his heels in a large cup. I'm not sure where to put him otherwise....he'd torment the rasboras in my 20 long...
