Have you tested your water?
No
If I did not test my water...
...I recognize that I will likely be asked to do a test, and that water tests are critical for solving freshwater health problems.
Do you do water changes?
Yes
What percentage of water do you change?
61-70%
How frequently do you change your water?
Every week
If I do not change my water...
...I recognize that I will likely be recommended to do a water change, and water changes are critical for preventing future freshwater health problems.
I recently got two lungfish one is fine but the other turned pale in colour is this a bad sign?

Maybe stress from the other lung fish if in the same tank.

i have heard that lungfish can be very aggressive and terretorial, even to each other. The larger and/or stronger one might be harassing the other one.
However they could still be stressed and getting used to their new home. I suggest providing a couple of hiding spaces to make them feel more comfortable and reduce any possible aggression.
BTW welcome to MFK
