i did a water change the other day , i guess it was just too much water (bout half). could that alone have caused stress which caused the cotton fungus, or is it more likely a parasitic problem.
any idea what this could be? how should i go about treating this?

hi i have bred mollys for years now and love them. That was alot of water to change which can cause stress. just a question do you add salt to your water?. best thing to do is to go out and get fungus treatment if that is what you are sure it is.
