I recently bought a synspillum. How long until they get their color?

The fish is about 1.5" at the moment

I'd say give it another month or two and you may start to see some color coming in. This is my first experience owning a synspillum so can't really say for sure. But I think around the 3" mark is when mine started coloring up. They are a gorgeous fish when adults. Look at this pic of an exceptional adult I found on the web.

ok thanks. Yea they are beautiful fish. What do you feed yours?

Mine eats just about anything. I feed a staple of Omega One cichlid pellets and NLS. He also gets sinking shrimp pellets, Spirulina flake (while he's still small), assorted frozen foods (bloodworms, brine shrimp and krill), chopped fresh market shrimp and he loves zucchini and shelled peas. Oh yeah, I also have some sun dried river shrimp I occasionally feed.

Mine eats all of the same as well. His mouth is so small it is hard to feed him pellets. His diet consists mostly Omega One flakes and brine shrimp.
