Hard to say when. Genetics play a factor as well as water temp and food.

should show signs of color around 6-8 weeks. full color development could take a couple months from that point

I had endlers born on Oct.3-6 and they got their colors in December so about 2-3 months. The males will get a slight color and over the next week or so it gets darker. It's like a little surpise as they all color up differently.
