    Hi, 
     
    We got this fish two days ago at Petco and none of the other fish looked sick in the tank.  We had one cory in the tank and got one other molly.  The fish store said they are all community fish and should be fine together.  Could this white spot be ick or a disease? or is it possible that he got attacked by another fish?  Part of his fin is gone on the side he has the white spider webs appearing. 
     
    I moved him to a smaller tank separate from the others in case he was sick....what should i do? He's swimming and can get around but not as easily as before.

    What should I do?  Thanks in advance!

    Hello, I am still new to this forum, but I think I can help! What do you mean exactly by spider webs, are they cottony at all? Also, have you noticed any small whit spots over your fishes body? The ripped fin might be from a fungal infection or fin nipping. If you could post a picture, that would be fantastic.
