I think I missed the question in here... :lol:
sorry it was kinda hidden in there my badI think I missed the question in here...
I have a male met. red top Galleriya that's not really coloringg up the way he should,
could my dominate male met. red zebra be preventing him from doing so??
ok then that must be it, my zed zebra swims around with his dorsal fin all spread out and he is an almost pink color and has a very iridescent blue sheen to him but my red top has just stayed blue with dark blue/black stripes except once he turned very light blue/white with the dark stripes and dark beard and swam around very erratically chasing everything for like 30 seconds then went back to his old look and temperamentFogelhund said:Yes, dominant males of one species, can prevent dominant species of other fish from colouring up.
ya i really liked to look of him when he was colored up. I think im going to remove the red zebras leaving only 4 yellow tail acei, 4 yellow labs, 4 red tops, and 1 syno, hopefully with just those other very tame species in there he will take over control and stay that way :dancing:malawimix said:I had those red tops for a while and found that they were easily intimidated into losing color. They are spectacular when fired up though!
