my gsp is turned completly black
 
I have six gsp and they range from all sizes, I love them and they are so cute. I, like an idiot thought the water was too cloudy and cleaned it completly out. I put them back in there and I new I had not acclimated the water yet and 1 of my gsp turned completly black and won't eat. I put him in a 10 gallon by himself that a gold fish has been in for about two weeks, he's kinda purked up. You think he's going to make it or should I kick myself in the butt? I put the other five in with my acclimated tank with cichlids, its 175 gallon, I know the'll be fine cause they are nice color and eating. So is there any hope for my black baby? :cry:

i bet thats a parasite hes got or a look alike shecies because some species look the same when young but as they get older they get there true colers kinda like comet gold fish. the leapard puffer lookes like the gsp but the turnes black and becomes more docile

Duiring times of exteme stress GSPs can turn black..it is only when the black stays you got a problem.How long has he been this way? Is the 10gl brackish?
