Color Changing Velvet
My former black oranda, Velvet. She was rich black before but she gradually turned yellow. http://thegab.org/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif By mid or late November, she may become completely yellow. Her ventral fins used to be completely black but after a few days, they turned yellow. I need to get some more new shots where her ventral fins are yellow.http://thegab.org/forum/images/smilies/laugh.gif
You have the best looking fish. Her name fits perfectly - looks just like velvet.
What causes the color change like that? Maturity?
Nah, it's the change in diet that prompted her black color to fade aside from the fact the lack of sunlight could not retain the melanophores (melanin cells) any longer.
Thanks by the way!:mrgreen:
Oooh she's gorgeous!!!! i LOVE black Moores! how big is she?
She's an oranda, Doggyhog. Currently 4.5 ".
Oops. Sorry about that. :P Shows how much I know about Goldies! LOL
She's VERY beautiful!
She is very pretty! But how do you know she is a she?
She's just one of the few that had managed to spawn before although the eggs were eaten quickly.:roll:
Oh ok. : )
As of December 2009.
I haven't grabbed current shots yet.
