    Have her gills always been red? It may just be her coloration that allows you to see the redness.

    No, her body was a beautiful blue and never saw any redness previously, there is another 2 and i cannot see any redness with them, even when i tried catching her shes didnt even attempt to swim away

    That's weird. I'm sorry, I don't have an idea of what it could be :(

    I guess keep treatment going and see if it effects them at all, hopefully i don't lose her
