I’ve discovered some weird white spots on my Molly’s tail and side fins. Pictures below. It doesn’t look like ICH because it isn’t sticking off of her scales. I’d like to know what these are so that I can treat her. She’s in a 29 gallon, been cycled since last year

Looks like fin rot or columnaris
I don’t think it’s fin rot, what can I do though?

I would keep the water pristine by doing water changes at least every other day. If it is getting worse I would put in a separate tank and medicate with something like kanaplex (because that's what I have on hand).
I'm no expert bc I'm still new but that's what I would do and have done. Maybe someone will chime in that knows for sure

This may offer part of an explanantion.
Possibly look into lymphocystis .

Thank you, I think it may be the calcification. She still seems okay, eating, active. Not laying on the ground or anything.
