Stripes of a fry

While watching the fry's, in their third day after hatching, i noticed that some of them have stripes from the eyes to their belly and some are just white(no stripes). i waited until they are a week old and still some still don't have the stripes.

Does this affect their sex, color, finnage, etc?

The mom is a Cambodian CT, and the Dad is a royal blue VT(i think with a CT gene because his fins are like shredded).

I think it all just depends on if they're gunna be darker or lighter :) All my fries are white because the parents are light coloured. I've seen other fry though, where the babies were darker with stripes, where the parents were dark :) So it all depends on the colour they're gunna be

i have the same thing here, it could be VT cause i spawned a HM male to my VT female, but my opinion am mostly leaning towards is the eyes are naturally like that cause my bro's adult female has striped eyes

I think it depends on the coloration background. some fry I have had were actually more grey than the others. most had the stripes that you could see when you got the magnifying glass out (and even after). then some were just white little things you could hardly see.
