low grad crs getting better over time?


ok so i have had these for about 2 years now. never added any new stock. got them as A-S grade. i really dont cull just sell some juvies from time to time as i need to thin out so i never really know what im gettin rid of (normaly only about 1/4 inch big when i sell) and slowly they are getting better whites and are turning into hino and no line hino where they all started as V band/tiger tooth? is this common? i will try to get pics in the am after i do water change.

Two years would be a reasonable amount of time to see change if you were culling.. But as you aren't, I'd say they had the genes for the traits you see in them.

Some people, like Nick, sell CRS from S-SSS that all have the same genes and chance to throw out an S-SSS no matter what stock you purchase from him.
