Scared my balloon mollie has some sort of disease
 
Hi All,

Just got home from a day out and noticed that the scales on top of my yellow balloon mollies head are turning white.

It doesn't look like a growth but like the colour is being stripped off.

Has anyone come across this before and know what it is and how to fix it?


Thanks is advance for any help!

Kind regards

Is there anything in the tank that th molly could have hurt itself on? I had a decoration in my betta tank that cuased him to get discoloration on his head, I'm assuming he scraped his head on it. After I took it out he stopped getting the discolored scales.

i Dont think so but I will keep an eye on him over the next few days and see if he does. He doesn't look sick so hopefully it may just be that.

Any other ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks
