Weird Spot On Guppy Tail

Saville081011

My female guppy has developed this weird discoloured spot on her tail. She has also lost colour on the lower section of her tail. I’m not sure if this is anything or me being a bit paranoid!
Water parameters:
pH: 6.8
Ammonia: <0.02ppm
Nitrate: 0ppm
Nitrite: 0ppm
Thanks in advance!

Hey love, discolouration in guppies is usually due to either temperature change or stress, sometimes hunger or if they're being bullied by other fish.

In relation to the spot, it might be that one of your other fish have nipped at it.

Monitor it for a couple days, see if starts to get better or worse.

If worse, it may be a fungal issue.

Also important to note that when a fishes tail/fin is healing from damage - it grows back kinda of clear at first.

Thank you so much!
I do have one female guppy that is a bit aggressive! I will keep an eye on her!
