My 2 year old white molly and black molly gave birth to a massive batch of fry almost a year ago. I kept the two biggest fry in the tank with the parents and they have grown up to be almost full size. Recently, I noticed that the two "juvenile" mollies, if you will, were acting odd. They stayed in place for prolonged amounts of time or hid for hours on end. The healthier looking molly turned up dead early this morning and the smaller one that seemed to have fin rot or fungus is acting much better oddly. I dont want to spread this to my mature mollies and I have already tried to use aquarium salt. How should I treat this? Could I use ich medicine, more salt? Any other suggestions? I know its not ich as ich is small white spots all over the body and my trashy pictures might not be good enough to give me a diagnosis. Sorry. Its hard to take pics. If the water looks dirty its becuase I just cleaned my gravel and there is some stuff floating around still. EDIT: I cant get a good picture of him as he keeps hiding. He has small white patches on the back of his body. his fins had pale tips and seem slightly jagged. he is acting lethargic and hides until I feed him

turn up the heat to atleast 30 degrees celcius.
a photo would be good maybe you can coax them out
Are you sure about the heat? I thought fungus gets worse at higher temperatures.

Give them methylene blue baths for 5 days and if possible move them to a hospital tank where you can easily monitor them. At least that is what I would do.
