Unhappy Helllloooo

Hi everyone. I'm a completely new member so I hope I'm doing this correctly.
I have a question and I hope someone can help me. We just treated my 10 gal tank with 2 female guppies and 1 mystery snail and 1 whisker shrimp for an infection. But the guppies gills (behind their eyes) still look irritated. They're a pinkish color. Anyone got any ideas??? Thanks!!!!

Welcome to the community!! I would ask the same. Is your tank cycled?

This sounds like you have issues with ammonia. Test that water, or bring it to your LFS and have them test for you. You should probably start partial water changes, and treat with Prime ASAP. Good luck!

Welcome. +1 on what others have said. How long has your tank been set up? When was your last water change & how big? If your tank is new it's probably cycling which means daily water tests & lots of water changes to keep your fish healthy & happy.
