Hello and welcome to the forum. It sounds like your fish has white spot disease. Could you post a photograph? This will help us indenting what we are dealing with. Throwing medication in sometimes can do more harm than good so it’s always important to make sure we’re treating our fish correctly. Good luck.

You should be able to downsize the photo(s) on your computer. Don't ask me how, as different programs work differently. Once you do, then upload them here.

You are correct this is white spot. What are you using for treatment? It’s important to use the right amount to avoid overdosing the fish. If you think you have added to much treatment then perform a water change. Best of luck.

Heat (meaning, raising the temperature to around 86F (30 C) and possibly salt (aquarium salt, not table salt) is the safest ich treatment for many fish and certainly for mollies. But what other species are in this tank, if any?

I agree. Raising the temp and aquarium salt for 10 days is best treatment if all fish/plants are salt safe.

We don't want to confuse you, Shanice, so let me just say that if you do change treatments, a major water change (75% of the tank volume) is advisable, then raise the temperature (partly by the water change and the rest by adjusting the heater). But we still need to know what other fish beside mollies are present.

I agree with Byron. If you can avoid adding medication initially this is always best. Medication should only be added as a last resort.

How long has your tank been set up? It’s important we figure out why your fish got the disease. Ensuring water is always clean is the first step. Your best bet would be to carry out frequent water changes if your tank is new. Test the water everyday for ammonia and nitrites and change the water accordingly to if they are above 0 or not. Try the recommendations above raising the temperature and adding salt. Hopefully with these instructions and execellnt water quality your fish will get better. Regular gravel cleans are important too. Sorry to hear about your fish.
