I have never had a Crowned Pearlscale before but I recently brought home a lovely one with a huge head tissue. She was in QT and sulking, not happy at all. 

She picked up shortly after Prazi treatment and going into display tank. 

My question for people who are experienced with keeping Crowned Pearlscales... is: Can they get reddish areas on their bubble/head tissue and or white spots? Is this part of normal growth? 

Please share any information you can provide me with in assistance in learning more about them and understanding what I am looking at. I kindly appreciate your time and advise. 

Thank you! 10888420_683500998437771_783745935943465

Annie, i am not experienced with crown pearlscales, but i do understand that bloody spots from deep, travelling to the surface on wens may be an issue.


could you answer the following questions as best as you can and if you are able to, provide a video showing us how she swims and perhaps that spot again under some good light? i want to see exactly the colours that this spot has.. ie, red, pink, perhaps purple. all this information will assist members who will be available to help you.
