Almost looks like ammonia burn from here. Can you get more pics? What size tank and what are the parameters? Tankmates? Water change schedule? How long have you had the fish? Need as much info as you can give.
Use liquid test kits, not strip tests. I recommend API test kits. Some people like to just buy the master fw kit. I buy them individually.

Yikes. :(

For some reason I decided to change about 50% of the water instead of the normal 30%. I used a water conditioner afterwards but apparently what happened was that I didn't shake it hard enough before pouring it in, so it wasn't effective and my other borellii female is now dead.

Geeesh. Hmm.
