Crown fish losing color

Hi guys my crown fish seem like it's losing color on one of his side fin.

When i bought it the both side fins have a black outer pattern like below


But his left side now the black color ban seem like going away.



This is normal?

Fish in tank 1 month

it's not.. pretty sure that's a typo. At least i hope so lol.

Honestly, the little guy looks pretty good to me. I don't see any color fading. Are you talking about those white spots on the top of his head? Not sure what that could be.. but i'm pretty sure it isn't normal. But it also could just be tissue damage from past fights with other fish or if some trauma happened to the fish.

Hopefully someone else can chime in.

lol yes it a typo.. look closely at the second picture.. see the side fin the black ban is almost turn transparent.

As for the little white spots we think he bump into a rock somewhere.

Alright i see it now. You mean, HIS right fin has a black outline, and then his left fin is missing that black outline. Right? If so.. then i have no clue. Not sure that is supposed to happen.

I think it's just the fish. Nothing to worry about.

If it has white salt sprinkle like grains on him then it`s most likely ick. Keep an eye out on him. If it`s ick then they will fall off and multi[ple and come back so that will let you know.
