Ok, just watched the fish for a bit and i saw two different mollies scratching their bodies against the same decoration. Now i'm worried something is wrong. Should i change the water and treat for ICH? I did a 30% water change yesterday. Did order my master test kit today btw.

Unless you see spots don't treat for ich. As I already said fish can scratch for many different reasons. Get a torch and shine it on the fish when the lights are off. If there is a gold or silver dust on them it's velvet. Don't mistake the natural color/shine of the fishes scales as this. I'm not suspecting velvet but better safe then sorry.

Oh and yes do a water change very day until you get your test kit.

good idea with the flashlight. it's really hard for me to tell if it's velvet. i just moved my post over to the sick fish section. i guess i'll change the water once i get these kids in bed.
