As stated above, most red wash appear at a later age. The pale looking fish with black lines is most probably a submissive color which will color up (royal blue) once she gains aggressiveness. But I've had a few that are actually that color and would only color up slightly when flaring.

This baby was sold 3 weeks ago, I told her I thought it was a boy.. those are just stress stripes because I had just netted him, he was all blue.
owner took a recent pic of him and oh my!

Looks the same as the one I posted above :) All the red in him is gone apparently.

One more update!

11 weeks old today compared to 9 weeks from the boy who had the most red.

(same fish as the first pic in my original post)

I wonder if and when their red will show up again.!

Don't spawn to green, spawn instead to steel.
