At first I thought it was just something they ate? but they kept that color for at least a week. Pretty sure they escaped from my tank at some point over the weekend though...did a WC yesterday and didn't see a single one. Crazy if they escaped the riparium after a 16" climb above the water line.

Careful Noah, I think the blue ones can fly.
I got them from aqua imports. I have had amano escapees before lol, saw one scurrying across the glass lid on my 36 one night , came across the top, and back into the water on the other end
