One of the most exciting aspects of fish keeping for me is watching my fish transform as they grow.

Would love to see others

Golden checkerboard pigeon and a blue scorpion/blue snakeskin after 2 months
Also tiger carnation/turquoise and a cobalt

In some fish, the colour they will get is also dependant on their environment and lighting. Angelfish are a good example.
Also food has a large influence on colouring. Just be careful not overdoing the colour boosting foods or the whites turn into yellows.

As I breed fish and sell them before adulthood I don't get to see what they turn into, but I really love the development of fry in all their forms. My favourite at the moment is watching the little tadpoles I got from the eggs turn into little corydoras.

Thanks for the tip. The only food I feed that has any type of color boosting is the Australian black worms
