    Default red tail shark's tail gone white

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone. i bought a red tail shark 3 days ago, when i first got him he seemed fine, getting used to his new home, but the next day i thought he was swimming a little weired, very fast and seemed without purpose, and sometimes vertically. so i got my water tested, ammonia and nitrate were fine, but nitrite was high which is weired because i did a 30% water change the day before i bought the RTS, but i did a water change yesterday anyway since nitrite was high. and since yesterday morning after i changed the water, i've noticed his tail has gone pink, and this morning white, i dont know what could be causing this and i am so worried.

    his only tank mate is a baby pleco and a baby Red eared slider, and the red tail shark is also a baby. the pleco and RES both seem fine/normal, nobody is bothering anybody. they are in a 30g now, i know i eventually have to move them to a much bigger tank at least a 75g. but as for now i can't afford it.

    i think he's eating fine. the only thing i could think of might be because he's still new, and this couple days have been very hot and i dont have an AV in the living room, so the tank's water might be a little warm?

    please any idea/suggestion would be appreciated!
