Unhappy I think my axie may have fungus

Hey there,

I think my axie Banda has fungus on her gills, there is white patchest on the stems
of Bandas' gills and white dots on the reddish filaments.
As for Bandas' filaments they arent a nice viberant red moreof a purpleybrown and look
shabby

Should I salt bath her just in case?

Brush the gill with a cotton wool bud and see if it flakes off....if it doesnt then its not funh=gus and it may be a natural marking...like mines got. If it does flake then gkive it a salt bath...twice a day

Nothing appeared to be flaking off,but it still looks quite fluffy.
I might just keep an eye on it
