He comes out to eat but often hides the rest of the day. I noticed that the large female gold dust mollies that I have often chase him around and bother him. This has been going on for over a month. He doesn’t have spots like Ich and he doesn’t have fuzzy growth. Just a white film on his body especially behind his head. What do you think this is?  All other fish (around 30) in the community tank are fine. 

pH 8.2

GH 75 KH 300

Ammonia and nitrite - 0

Nitrate - 10-20

Water temp is 77 F

Thanks for your help.

It could be a fungal infection Treat with aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 2 gallons for 5days if no improvement I would treat with API fungus cure and maracyn

Would you treat the whole tank with aquarium salt or quarantine? It’s 55 galllons.
