The (4 juvie) meekis I just got into my 55g lost much of their color from netting and relocation stress...I hope to give them good (if not optimal) tank conditions, so hope their color will come back/develop with time...check your water conditions and temp, and be certain they are the preferred conditions for the meekis, and color should return...a spawing partner would certainly help...I don't have any experience with gouramis/meeki interaction...I don't like gouramis much...no personality!

Cheers from Connecticut!

My firemouth lives peacefully with 2 Dempsey's, 2 Jewel's,and a Yellow lab Cichlid also 7 black Ruby barbs. I have plenty of caves for hiding been fine for little over a year. Jewel's have had 3 sets of fry. I just try to keep them entertained n use live food when possible to help with the urge to devour.
