My cellophane VT developed dark pigment all over his body. When purchased two months ago, his body had no pigment whatsoever. At first, the new pigment was chalked up to natural color change. Now, not sure.

At first glance, the scales looks black. Upon close inspection, they show slight blue iridescence. Fish's body looks smooth on the affected areas, no cysts or lumps. Behavior is normal, no changes.

What do you think? Normal color development or blackspot? Is there a surefire way to tell the difference? Getting worried; dark areas are spreading with no sign of slowing down.

Perfectly normal :) Hes a marble so will randomly change colour as he grows, thats the fun of marbles, you never know what they'll turn into next
Great to hear! He isn't acting sick, but it's still kind of disturbing to have your completely transparent fish suddenly turning black on you. :shock: I'm glad to hear that this is normal.

Cellophanes usually contain the marble gene. He might change color throughout his life. :)
