10 Gallon Tank Pregnant Molly

Ashlyn1620

I have a Molly that I’m pretty sure is pregnant but I just noticed a white dot near her analfin. I’ve researched but all that’s coming up is parasites and diseases but they talk about white dots all over and she doesn’t have that.
So, I was just wondering if anyone knows what a white dot near the analfin of a pregnant female Molly means? It may be an indicator she’s pregnant or just normal, but I’m not sure, does anyone know what it means?

use the emergency template and please post a photo it sounds like ick also if shes kept with males(all live barers in genral) always asume there pregnant

ich is a disease thats in all water and you can get rid of it by turning up the temp to rush its life cycle, use the template so we can identify what caused the lowered immune system for that to happen

Honestly, I don’t think it’s ich bc It’s literally one dot and I see it on Molly’s giving birth on YouTube… just wondering if anyone knows what it is?

ya that looks like ich. its early stage and its lifecycle will not baldy effect your fish, it will go on its own(will take time plus thats very mild so may get worce) you could raise the temp and rush its life but thats the best i got. shouldent kill her
