Hey!

I treated a demasoni for bloat when I noticed she didn't eat anymore...

I moved her to a hospital tank a week ago. Treated with Sera Baktopur Direct and Epsom salt.

Yesterday night I saw she started swimming around agian BUT...

Then I l saw that the left part of her face is dark... almost black while the right side is normal??? She looks like something out of batman movie.....

I raised the temperature to 80F. (26 Celsius)

Could it be the Epsom salt or perhaps the Baktopur?!?

She is swimming around now and I found her next to the heater. That couldn't have burn her face, right???

Anyone came across this before?

Yep- it's suspected to be the result of an infection and/or damage of the melanocytes, and may or may not go back to normal. In most cases, the fish continues to do just fine.
