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

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!
