Don't know what mood is? Color morphing is the one of the way's the fish tells us what he is feeling. Many times during breeding, colors will become mor vivid. Fright patterns are sometimes displaye as "barring up". The fish will display verticle or horizontal bars in order to make itself "camoflauged" into its surroundings. Sometimes a fish will darken up when stressed. It all depends upon the individual fish and is something you will need to get to know your fish and its habits and "moods".
