Red gills?

About a week ago my female betta and one of my males spawned. It went almost like clockwork and I was quite pleased, but when I separated the pair I noticed her gills were all red.

I attributed it to mating roughousing and haven't thought of it till now a week later, when I noticed that despite her water changes and bettafix, her gills are still red.

Any ideas?? Her tail was ripped during mating, but it is healing splendidly so I'm at a bit of a loss as to what is causing her red gills. She is super active and wiggling excitedly at me even as I type...

If one side of the gill is redder than the other than she has an inflamed gill. You can treat this with a 100% water change and then add some meds. for more info about this go to and click the health section and you can read more about this. I am sorry, but i have never had to treat this so would be more helpful. Sorry but hope i helped a little bit
