Hi ,

I just added my two new mollies and everything was going fine untill they jumped out of the aquarium and all the way on-to my desk, they were sitting there for 5 secs 'til I managed to pick them up and drop them back in. I was scared they might have hurt themselves and asked a friend if they would be OK after being out of the water and he said:

''The ones that jumped out will be damaged (the protective slime gets removed) and will probably develop White Spot''

Is this true if so what should I do? Please help!!!

Thanks
Laura

BTW: the aquarium hood is ON!!!

So are you saying that they both jumped out of the tank at the same time? Kind of like syncronized suicide? Holy cow, I've never heard of such a thing...

It is possible, but I wouldn't do anything rash like starting to medicate the tank ahead of time. I seriously doubt if 5 seconds out of the tank was enough to do any lasting damage...

Both of the mollies seem fine now but I'm still keeping a close eye on them.

The female jumped then a sec later the male followed! well strange! Confused
