Does anyone know if any fish illnesses can cause discoloration in fish? I don't mean white or gold spots like ich or velvet. I've noticed in some of my fish since I moved them to a new tank that they seem to have an orange hue on parts of their body. I don't know if I just didn't notice it before or if there is something to be concerned about. The fish don't seem to be lethargic and they have healthy appetites at this point. Anybody aware of a discoloration issue?
First, Temp78 Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 20 Gh/kh 3/3 Ph 7.0 I have a pair of pelviachromis taeniatus alone in a 29g with about 2 week old fry. Today I noticed the females color has completely changed and she looks a bit ragged. There's no change in her towards the fry but she is now hyper aggressive towards the male. This is their first spawn and also mine with dwarf cichlids. My concern is obviously what might be going on with her, but also if it would be a good idea to remove the fry to grow out in their own tank. Thanks all
