Mollies tails are turning clear

I hope someone can help. My black ang gold mollies tails are turning clear. They seem to be very healthy and strong swimmers. I have tried to get good pictures but they are fast moving. Below is some background.

I have a 55 gallon tank 3 guppies 4 mollies. My mollies are gold and black and I have had them about 2 weeks.

I originally bought 3 mail guppies and the 4 gold and black mollies from a fish store here in town. (One molly the sides of her tail fins were always clear.) I will never buy from them again!

The first day I lost 1 guppy 3 days later I thought one got attacked by one if the mollies he would not leave alone because his tail was torn. I added some aquarium salt after doing research online but he died. with the assumption it was his harassing I added my 2 female guppies that I got from a different store.

I change 25 to 30 percent water weekly I feed them API tropical flakes 2 times a day what they can eat in about 2 to 3 minutes. Water temperature seems steady at 78 ph at around 7.2 GH 300. KH 280 nitrate 10 nitrite and ammonia 0. I use api test strips

I believe that molly tails going see through is perfectly normal. If they otherwise seem healthy i wouldnt worry about it.
