Help Identifying this

DaddyFred

One of my Red Tail Sharks is showing discoloration on its body and tail. It’s eating and behaving normally, and is the only fish in the tank who seems to be affected. I haven’t had this happen to any fish I’ve had in the past, and just need a little help identifying the probable cause. TIA

Sharks lose there color when there stressed,sick, or water parameters are not good.So if i were you i would test your water to make sure its good so you know its not that. It could also be that hes stressed from fighting with another fish

Thanks for the insight. I recently had a spike in nitrate and nitrite. I did a 20% water change the other day and was planning a follow up test today. I do have a Blue/Gray African Cichlid that’s a bit territorial but they usually steer clear of each other, but that may be part of it as well.
