Fry almost always have stress stripes when they are young. It is a camouflage mechanism they use in the wild.

They can also get them if they're scared. They either get pale, or stripes. Nibbler gets pale when I clean the tank, and Flame gets stress stripes. I think it's because the new water is cold until the heater heats it, and he gets scared because I have to put him in a cup.

@ Jazattackk, you should always make sure that the new water is the same temperature as the old water or else your fish will go into shock. You also need to acclimate him into the new water if it's a little different temp than the water that he's in. You can do this by floating the cup in the water until it reaches the same temperature.

at this moment one of the females stripes went away after about 2 days.
And the other one isn't going away as much, i mean i see the stripes but very vaguely. and she stays at the bottom of the tank does anyone know whats going on?

heres some pictures.. sometimes she goes up to the top but only to get some air and them she stays up there for a little while and goes back down... sorry the pictures aren't that good quality.

I'm sorry, I can't see anything in the pictures other than a big blob.lol It looks like her back tail is shredded a little. Going up for air and staying there for a little bit is normal, they don't have to constantly be swimming.

Lol it's ok. It sounds like normal behavior. Is she still eating? Is her stomach big?
