    please see the pics of my cichlid.
    I have had pinkie for over a year. There are two bottom feeders in the tank as well.
    The discoloration and lip issue started a few months ago.
    Eating is fine, activity is normal
    Any thoughts
    Tank chemistry is okay per my local shop

    also when you say water parameters is ok, did you get the number?

    they did give me numbers but I do not have them
    They told me all numbers were in parameters for cichlids
    I have pics but not real good at posting yet
    I also treated for two weeks with triple sulfa

    Still rough on posting

    If you could get an API Freshwater Master Test Kit (it has bottles of liquid tests and test tubes ) that would be so helpful. It is essential to be able to test your own water, if at all possible. It is very accurate and lasts a very long time. Don't get test strips; they are not accurate.

    Knowing your exact water parameters (temperature, pH, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate) will help us be able to help you. Hopefully others will be able to help you with your fish's health!
