This is bizarre! If she is still acting healthy, I wouldn't worry too much, but ial or Epsom salts would help. And of corse, as with all illnesses, warm, clean water.

Matt, she is mostly acting normal now. I mean, she seems a little freaked out that she can't close that gill but she is still as lively as usual. I took her out of her tank, jarred her, drained the tank , vacuumed the crap out of the gravel, moved her decorations around a bit and then refilled it and floated the jar. i floated her and dripped for an hour and then released her. She was super happy to be back in her home and ate her dinner normally. She is staying near the top of the tank mostly but I think she'll be ok... I will get the IAL tomorrow I hope to God that she'll be ok over night.

How is she?

That's damage, ammonia/nitrite poisoning, or bacterial gill disease.

She is doing great! Her gill is back to normal mostly and her behavior is normal. I don't understand how it could be ammonia/ nitri te poisoning, her ammonia has never gone above 0.25 ppm and nitrite Iis always 0 ppm. I use api liquid drop tests. Her gills have always been that color since she developed color. What are the symptoms of bacterial gill disease?

If it's getting better on its own don't worry about it.

Bacterial gill disease shows inflamed gills that stick out slightly and won't close fully.
