Arrow Urgent Help sick fish :(

My red wag platy is really sick she has all this white stuff on one half her body and belly:it kind of looks like she is peeling a bit..my younger platies have grey matter on their heads..I recently started making my own filter bags as they come as a kit with the carbon..it just started when I started using the new filter bags which are exactly like the ones I buy individually..I don't want my fish to get sick..anything would help

Sounds like a common aquarium disease. I am almost certain the symptoms you are discribing have nothing to do with your filter bags, unless they intrOducong some sort of chemical..

So sorry for your loss. Next time, search this forum for other signs and explanations, you'll almost certainly be able to find what your looking for.
