We actually have a lid, it took us a very long time to work out how she managed to get out - turns out theres a small hole where the filter wire feeds through and she got out through that. We've know covered those and lowered the water just in case. Better safe then sorry.

She has white hairy bits covering the whole wound and they were small before but now theyre about a cm long. Fungus? :S Im not sure if thats how its supposed to be.

It confusing because besides that she is fully normal, so i don't know if shes getting better or worse.

With fungus, the axies dont normally develop wounds. Usually just white fillament growth and maybe loss of gill length (usually temporary).
