    I can't really tell what's bubble and what isn't lol, my eyes aren't the best. Is it on the mouth, and does it look fuzzy? If so, it may be columnaris, which looks like a fungus but is actually a bacteria that needs different treatment (kanaplex or macyrn 2). If it looks like grains of salt or something similar, it is likely Ich. I don't have experience with fungus, so I can't give much help there, sorry

    Sometimes my mollies get the same exact thing. Could be just a scratch. Their scales usually fall of and grow back perfectly normal. Don’t really know what caused it.

    But it might not be that for your fish. Keep an eye on them.

    I see what your talking about and it could either be a natural color chance or some missing scales. Keep an eye on it though.

    Thanks, I will I have just done a 50% water change in case it is something in the water,he seems fine other then the patch he is acting normal. I don’t think it is a colour change as he is supposed to blue always a sunset orange not white,I will keep a very close eye on the white patch and see if it changes at all if it doesn’t I will go to my pet store for sometime of medication.
