Nope, the red comes then blue and the rest. Same thing for red wash, red comes first and goes first.

the top layer blue/green can show up as soon as one week old. to see it, a bright light pointed at the fry will show some specks on the body and tail.

Yep I have a cool light with a magnifier glass that I use to see the colors. I have noticed in my breeding that VT's take a long time to show any color where as my HM's show color very quick. Anyone else notice this?
