My black diamond female has lost coloring in her spots.
She started eating mysis shrimp but still hasnt gained her color back its been 5 days any help Ive moved alot of fish out of the tank.
Water parameters 0 ammonia 0 nitrites 5ppm nitrates
She has been eating but tends to hangout in the corner.
The other rays(2) in the tank are eating, begging for food, active, and acting great.

Is it just me or the head looks sunken in pretty bad? Anthony can you get me a better picture of the space between her eyes?

X3 definitely does look sunken in and super skinny, AnthonyFish20 AnthonyFish20 you should have quarantined the ray for at least a month maybe longer to make sure it’s eating good observe what foods it likes the most and give you a chance to convert to what all other rays are currently eating and most importantly if needed treat with anti parasitic medication (prazi, metro, levamisole etc) maybe Kanamycin to boost appetite and to make sure there are no underlying bacterial/fungal infections.

Keep feeding what she likes. Small portions many times a day and keep water pristine and you might be able to turn this around
