Stress stripes

Just curious to how long stress stripes last? I had my female for about a week or two and she stills haves stripes. I thought it was just part of her markings....she is gaining a red tint to her though. She is eating and acting normal so I do not see what would make her stress still.

Stripes don't always means stress-usually when you see stripes and it is related to stress you will also see other symptoms of stress-like hiding, clamped fins, poor appetite, fading/paleness etc......

If she is otherwise acting normal then I wouldn't worry...it could just be normal coloration, communication, camo....etc....

Thank you for the responce. Well she does hide on occasion but I think it is her and not stress and the fading would be hard to tell cause she is white with the black stripes and having a red tint to her. she does eat well so I will stop worrying and enjoy her beauty :)
