Some of my cichlids have lost their color since i got them 3 months ago or so...

My temp is about 79 F. ...

Feeding spirulina flake strictly....

Changing water 50% weekly with pre-conditioned water...

What can i do to color up?

It makes a big difference fish you have. Food does not make non colorful fish colorful.

If you bought "Peacock" males, they can lose the color when they are not dominant.

If you bought Mbuna, many of the common ones that are colorful when little, can look less attractive when bigger. Males also can change color.

If you bought hormoned fish, they should lose the color.
