Exclamation What's Happened to Seuni?!

What's wrong with Seuni?! She has these dark red marks on the side of her head that just popped up! They're symetrical on both sides.. a few of my other bettas have it too but hers is brighter... I just gave them some red color enhancing food yesterday so I'm not sure if it's just her natural color or scratches! I don't want my girl to ne sick or injured, please help!

All females, and even pale males will have that eventually. It's just the color of their gills showing through their scales that have a lack of pigment. As long a she's acting and behaving normal, and not seeming clamped up, she should be fine.

Also, about the food, those foods usually have a high protein content, which makes all their colors, not just red, brighten up (or darken). Unless you got some cheap-o brand that actually uses a high dye content to actually dye the fish from the inside out.

Mmm not sure.. Bought her from the Petstore 2 weeks ago? She was smaller and didn't look so hot when I got her. So young I guess
