fish color

I was wondering if sand makes you fish lighter colored and does tetra color food really work

Well, darker colored gravels and sand (and backgrounds) make fish more secure, which makes their color show more. Lighter colored things make some fish stress. Either way, fish would most likely change color.

About the food, what do you mean "if it works?" Like, do fish eat it, or it makes fish change colors?

Most foods with color enhancers and beta carotene do.

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.
