Black Molly white scales

zSatori

Hello,

I’m fairly new to the hobby but have done extensive research. Tank is 75 gallons. Recently I have bought 4 mollie’s about a week ago and today the black Molly appears to have white scales? It doesn’t look fuzzy to me and has similar white line on other side. It’s not behaving abnormal and fairly active. She eats normal also. Does anyone know what this is? Or is it a normal thing?

water parameters
75 gallons
Temp: 77
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 5

It could be "lifting white scales". What color is the fishes poop?

The poop is usually brownish or green sometimes (after she eats the algae). Meant to add she was pregnant at the store.
