Diagnosing a molly who was completely fine two days ago..

macik

Hello,
So about a week ago I got a new tank set up and purchased some mollys from our local fish store. Yesterday i noticed one of the Dalmatian Molly’s had a weird bump on its side i hadn’t noticed before. I also haven’t noticed anyone picking on it as it was the biggest in the tank. This morning i came out to turn their lights on and feed them and i found the one who had the noticeable bump on it yesterday laying down in my plants almost dead and the bump turned into what looks like an open wound but I’m not too sure, i don’t believe it was from the other fish. I was wondering if anyone else had this happen and if it’s something i need to treat the whole tank for? (Pictured below is the fish after i removed it from the tank as it was unable to swim and could only lay on its side not in the upright position. It is still barely alive so i separated it and put a small aerator in with it so the other fish will not pick on it either until it passes or if i can find a way to treat it.)
