| || | Very quick color change ?!?
Hi everyone !
Just bought 12 colombian tetras to add some company to my 9 silvertip tetras...
They are 1/2 to 3/4 inches, and were transparent grey this afternoon. Their fins and tails got red the moment I let the bag float on the water. An hour later, their bodies and eyes became blue !!
My question is : HOW'S THAT EVEN POSSIBLE ? I thought they would take weeks to change color, and needed low pH (the water is 7.6) and super food to get such a beautiful suit ! They didn't even get any food yet...
Also, the silvertips have been spawning like 3-4 times a week, with regular flakes and basic pH even while cycling the tank. I've been feeding only once every 2 days, since the tank is new (2 months now).
Questionning myself, but very happy with the results !
