Welcome to Fishforum.com.:wave:
Welcome to the forum. :mrgreen:
My guess is male.:?
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.
is he old enough to eat guppies yet?how high is the risk of disease from feeders?is ther anything else hell be sure to eat?he doesnt seem to fond of flakes and i bought him cichlid pellets but he very rarely comes to the surface for anything...so he never eats them
Try frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms, or mysis shrimp.
