What are the dimensions of the tank? Any tankmates? I’d dose some salt, 1 tsp per g for now.

Thanks for helping, hope it works
Don’t know if that’ll correct the situation. Seen this in tanks that need to be upgraded. Not saying ur 250g is small but it’s has been suggested, the size of tanks. Short of external infections. Monitor for any external infections etc.
