Well I moved some of my breeders around today and noticed one of the females telson is black on one side of it. It is hard to capture it in a picture. Could it be a fungus or it is normal?

No reason to separate her if her behavior is normal.

Was the telson always like that or did it just happen?

It could just be that the telson simply has a dark spot.

Her behavior is normal as can be. I just havnt seen it before, maybe it was there the whole time. I looked up scorpion deseases and found some species with fungus that looked black, why i was so concerned.

That fungus is called mycosis. It usually happens only to desert dwelling species.Pandinus imperator and other rainforest scorpions almost never get it because they have to be adapted to it.
