It’s a huge community tank so I can’t see everything, but so far it’s the only I see.

It looks like a slime coat issue but I don't know what could have caused it. Is there aquarium salt in the tank?

Pop eye as well. It kills quickly.

Get that peppered in a hospital aquarium ASAP and start treating with antibiotics.

Not sure on the scale issue (most likly also bacterial)

I lost a molly a while ago and was stunned how quickly it killed her.

As an aside, salt is not good for corys.
