One of my mollies has what looks like a bite out of one fin, but it seems like it's gotten bigger over the past week, so I was wondering if it is "fin rot" or maybe some other kind of infection. Also, I noticed a white spot near his tail. I don't think that the spot is ich, because it's not really a dot but more of a cloudy area.

I'm planning on taking these pics to the fish store later to see what they say but wanted to get more opinions.

A little background, after 3-4 weeks of starting my tank it got super cloudy and the amonia levels were crazy. I vacuumed the gravel, changed the water, and added drops to lower the ammonia and nitrates. Haven't had the issue since but I'm wondering if this infection started beforehand.

If it looks like a cloudy patch or fuzzy film over the area, if could be either a fungal or bacterial infection.
