Sounds like the one with white bumps have ich, and the other one has bloat. I dont think they have a treatment guide on this site, I would slowly bring the tank temp up to 82*F and treat the bloat with tetracycline(follow treatment guidelines on package) mixed in with some thawed brine shrimp. You will also need to fix the reason why your fish ended up with bacteria infections. Generally caused by poor water conditions or improper acclimation. Keep the tank on a good cleaning and waterchange schedule to deter future problems.

Popped this in 999/911 as more appropriate here :)

I agree with GM (good call mate!) - and some useful links are here:

<a href='http://allfishforums.com/index.php?showtopic=1550' target='_blank'>Water Quality clicky</a>

<a href='http://allfishforums.com/index.php?showtopic=1123' target='_blank'>Fish Acclimatising clicky</a>

<a href='http://allfishforums.com/index.php?showtopic=1124' target='_blank'>Quarantine clicky</a>

<a href='http://allfishforums.com/index.php?showtopic=567' target='_blank'>White Spot aka "ICK" clicky</a> (Rather a long conversation, but some good info)

Hope that helps!

Note: If you have ANY loach species, put them in a seperate tank bfore treating with any medication, or put the fish to be treated in the seperate tank. Loaches are very sensitive to meds.

Just a few points to clarify first:
- Your mollies are white... and they have white bumps on them?
- Are the bumps proper bumps, or just spots?
- If they are bumps, how big are they?

- Are the scales pufferd out on one side or both?
- Are do they look puffed out from above?
- Do they look like a pine cone type of puffed out?

now that i look at it more the one does have spots rather than bumps, and the other has both sides flared out just like a pine cone< i just set up a 30 gallon tonight and did so like you told me to on the other page (worked great), would it be ok to put them in that to medicate them

Then gm333 is correct about the diseases as far as I can tell.
Yes, you can do that.
