    :;fr hi guys, I'm sad to tell you that my Merle Molly passed but happy to say that I found 6 fry buried in the rocks. They are in a separate tank now. My question for you today is... My black female molly that I've had for a month now and that was flowrishing seems to be going gray from the gills back. Now, I know she is not that old and all my readings are ok in my 10 gallon tank. No bubbly Ich but I have no experience with it. Everything else I'm afraid I've seen. Help anyone?

    Your Molly may be going through a brief period where they turn 'dalmation'. I am not 100% sure because I have no experience with mollies. I hope you find your answer.

    Also, wait and see what other members have to say.

    That's interesting because I have a black mollie who is also changing colors. He also has ICK though so I just left he was sick. SUre you don't see any white spots?

    when fish go through the cycle process, getting ich, or other issues, they will change colors according to stress levels and what their scales are exposed to... A week or two of small parital water changes with some stress coat , should help them clear up (not ich but the gray coloring )
