I was venting my greshaki today, upon putting them back in the tank, one got a kind of dark face, and also showed some heavier barring than normal. Most of the time, theres not a hint of barring on any of them.

heres a normal boy a bit immature still at 4.5 inches but he looks pure



and heres the one that always looked pure until he got real pissed off, his color seems a bit off and his dorsal seems a bit off after a second look, or am I being paranoid.



is there some hongi in the mix? as I write this he's back to normal. He usually has very pale almost female like colors compared to the other male.

Cheers,
Eric

It would not be my expectation to see barring, or dark markings in the face of greshakei. I haven't kept this species, so it is best to wait for someone who has.

Something about him definitely looks "off" to me...my guys never looked like that, whether dominant or subdominant, maturing or full grown....
