    I need serious help, today I noticed that 1 of my molly just looks weird and behaving even weirder. He's looking very skinny, not eating, barely swimming (and when he does he's at the top of the tank) and has this white fuzzy stuff under its gills (I'll attach a photo for reference).
    I don't know my parameters, but I I'm doing 25% water change every week. I really need help, I don't want him to die.

    How long have you had your tank? Is it cycled?

    Yes it's cycled.

    I was hoping someone who knew exactly what it was would answer.

    I found two things with similar symptoms in my search.  ? on one site the person asked about the fish poop. Stringy white means parasites.

    How do you know it's cycled if you don't know your water parameters? Do you know pH at least?

    I would start off by increasing your water changes to 25-50% daily.

    What tank size is this, and what's the complete stocking?
