Marx, your image links are not complete. Did you simply copy the shortened image links (which is the case here)? You'll need to approach your Photobucket and copy and paste the image links again.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

thank you lupin

anyone else have an opinion?

the reason im still askink is because sometimes his colors get very dark and when this happens he gets som light blue metallic looking sploches on his lower gill plate it hardly ever happens but it does happen.

also i have been told that when he gets pale looking he is stressed. if this is true what does it mean when he gets reall dark almost black stripes?
is it normal for him to switch back and forth so often?

Probably a male, but still too young for me to say with 100% certainty.

Colors change with moods on many fish. Darker colors tend to show contentment. Lighter colors and barring are usually a fright pattern. Paler colors are signs of stress.

Try frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms, or mysis shrimp.
