I had quarantined and treated a black molly suffering from what I had diagnosed as tuberculosis (based on my reading three different books), but she died anyway... I'm told you can't treat TB, but I tried anyway, she was my favorite...
So I now have two questions:
1. How do I clean the hospital tank, considering we should avoid chemicals? (It's a 10-gallon, with a Whisper, but of course I had not used the carbon filter as I treated the molly with antibiotics)
2. Should I treat the rest of the fish in my main tank? They seem perfectly OK. It's a 25-gallon, brackish water, all within safe parameters, with two more mollies, three neon tetras, and two zebra danios. Since I had taken almost 10 gallons out of it for the hostital tank, it has just had a 40% water change. (I plan on restocking in mid-September, when I'm finally done with being gone almost every ten days).
