I have what pet stores like to call a "blueberry" oscar. Without realizing that this coloration wasn't natural (as my oscar is very pale), I purchased him. He's active and healthy and a great eater. My concern is returning him to his natural color. I know that with time the dye fades, but is there any known way to speed this process? :-?
-Floating Plants - Oscars will readily uproot plants, but floating plants are already uprooted. These give (at least) a two fold benefitâ€¦ plants eat waste byproducts from the water and they also â€˜softenâ€™ the light which can make the fish feel more at easeâ€¦ again lower stressâ€¦
It sucks learning about the dying process after you buy a dyed fishâ€¦ Give it your best and see what happens. I have a â€œBlueberryâ€
