Red streaks on my yellow guppy
Yesterday I noticed my male yellow guppy had bright 2 bright on his sides near his back. He's swimming around and eating but I'm still concerned. Its hard to get a picture cuz my camera sucks. Any advice would be great. Thanks. Tested the water after I noticed and levels are good, no ammonia or nitrite, low nitrates ph 7.5

maybe he is just getting the rest of his color cause he may be young.

I really hope thats all it is :D The red is so bright! Its very noticeable against the yellow. He's my favorite fish so I worry bout him.

Went to the petstore and saw that all the yellow leopard guppies had the exact same red streaks. I was told they are just juveniles and its nothing to worry about so I feel better. Thanks biokid you were right its just cuz he's a youngling :P ( he's a pig too always right to the top of the tank at feeding time before everyone else )

the red part is near the top, it looks more red because of the flash from the camera. all the yellow guppies have it at the LFS.
