Flaky Molly


Recommended Posts

Came home from work, went to feed the fish, and I see one of my mollies has white flakes all over his face.  These are Dalmatian Mollies, and they've been going from white with black speckles to nearly completely black over the months.  None of the other fish have this, and this looks different from common Ich.  He swims around without issue, ate normally, but just to be safe I put his butt in quarantine.  Anyone have any idea what it could be and how to treat it?  I tried getting pics, but as usual he didn't wanna cooperate.


Here are the water parameters:

  • pH: 7.5
  • Ammonia: 0
  • Nitrite: 0
  • Nitrate: 5
  • Temp: 79

Thank you @Colu!  I ordered some Kanaplex, but in the meantime I dosed with regular Maracyn since I have that for the Med Trio.  Gonna be keeping my eye on the rest of the tank to make sure it hasn't passed on to the community.
