Are these symptoms of gill flukes

    My electric blue ram has a patch of red at the base of its gills. It also appears to be constipated. The water is fine with about 5 ppm nitrate 0 everything else except the ph is a little high (7.2). It doesnt appear stressed nor has it lost any color but it does flap its gills rapidly.its behavior has also changed. It no longer chases fish that are in its territory and spends a lot of time hiding.
