Faded fry

Recommended Posts

I have some fry in a white bin and they aren't as colored up as they should be. The first ones hatched on January 11th or so. Other than that they're good! Eat like crazy and constantly swimming when the lights are on. Here's a pic but I can't see them as well as if they were in a tank. Any ideas? Could it be because they're in a white bin? I don't think it's an oxygen problem since they're not gasping for air and are active. These are Vietnamese white cloud minnows.❤️

most likely in my mind being small fry are semi transparent anyways, the white container is making them appear to be lighter than they would normally be seen.

I agree with what others have said. In my experience fish try to keep their colors as close as possible to their environment. I had some tapajos on white sand and they were very light, once I changed to a darker substrate they also got darker. I hope this helps
