I've had a gold lyretail molly for about 2 weeks now and when I purchased her at Petsmart I did notice some white looking scales but thought that may just be her coloring. Her scales on top of her head look whiter than the rest of her scales and looks almost dry. Like dry skin on a fish. They are not inflamed or oozing anything. They also are not raised. I've been all over the web trying to figure out what it may be and I have come across a few sites with what looks like the same exact question as this and pics to go with some, but no one seems to know what it is. She's eating well and swimming well, looks very happy. My water parameters read as 7.2 PH , 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and 0 nitrates. Its a 37 gallon newly set up tank. Not sure if its done cycling because I don't have any nitrates. I also don't use salt cause I have other fish that wouldn't tolerate any salt. All my other fish seem fine and it doesn't appear to be spreading. I've added some prime today but that's all I've done so far. I've thought I may give her a salt bath to see if that helps. Any idea what it may be?
