My mom thought I was nuts at first for taking Simon home, not believing that this "ugly gray homeless fish" would become colorful like I said he would. But he didn't even take a week to go bright red!

All it really took was clean water. In fact, we had to stop at Fareway on the way home, so I replaced half his cup water with bottled drinking water in the car. When we came out, his color had already spread more into his fins. Poor dude just didn't want to be swimming in ammonia.

That first pic is on my desk at home, by the way. That was after I'd replaced half the water. I don't have a good pic of him in the store, but he was worse.

Of course, good food and lots of plants to hide in didn't hurt! :P

I want to try doing something like that. Buying an unhealthy one with bad coloring and nursing him to health to see what he turns into :)

I think it's amazing how much their color changes when they get stressed. Granite had a pretty dramatic color change in his old home over the course of a few months...and it happened in the course of three days with me.

When he first came home:

He's also got the black edgings on his scales like a pineapple, thats whats got me a bit confused about his true colors. I'm not sure if he'll stay dark and be a chocolate or end up getting lighter and becoming a pineapple?

Edit: Went and looked up chocos and saw the black edging haha. Didn't see it the first time I looked

Np! Chocolate's can sort of vary to having just dark edges to the scales but their body should be much darker than their fins mostly and should have a brownish look to the body. They can have some blue irid on the body but minimal to no irid is ideal technically ^_^
