....do they turn gold/yellow? Just brought 4 young 'gold' severums and they are white a full half day after putting them in the tank...? They looked quite white at the lfs but I figured it was because they were in the dealers tank....

Cheers

thanks, about 2.5 inches including tail length, they are snow white and were in a mixed tank so I phoned up the lfs to ask about parentage...they get them from a local breeder so I'm guessing the local breeder has male green and female gold or other way round so gold won't become deep yellow as I presume the deep yellow is a line bred trait - that sound about right? Still like them but may get some deep golds from a different source as I'm aiming for two pairs in my tank anyway...
