Okay so I was giving them a night time feeding as I missed their mid-afternoon feeding and I noticed Akira seemed to have a white wash and his face despite normally being so dark in certian light appears to have a mix of pale blue to dark blue scales on his face. I'm so worried because his beard has seemed to have taken on a black line as well as some white. I'm so scared because he's lost his violet in his tail too. I would have provided a pic but he was moving so fast and was so active...The odd thing that worried me most was he didn't eat all of his pellets.
