Rep: Thera Awakening is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Is this discoloration normal?

Iíve had my axie for about a month now and sheís had this white splotch on her cheek since I got her. It isnít fluffy or flakey so I donít think itís fungus? But I canít find anything similar online
Also, in the photo from Sep. 20 the tips of her gills are changing color? They were brown like the rest of her and now today they are a bright red
Should I be worried?!

I'd say it's colouration. I don't think there's anything bad about the gills changing colour. I wonder if one of the parents were a copper or leucy? It could be where the gill colour is coming from. Wild's usually have purple gills, but I could be mistaken!

looks fine to me, as long as they aren't losing filaments or the gills are not curling
