Firstly, wonderful fish.

I have always wanted one.

I am curious though, does the colour/pattern stay as it gets older?

Thank you!

As I read, if it is a true high quality panda the colors will stay. Now considering I purchased the gf at a lfs it's probably not the highest quality so I'm prepared for a color change. But, I will enjoy the current color. I'm thinking eventually he/she might eventually turn all white. Only time will tell. I will keep everyone posted :)

Got rid of the plastic plant and added two silk plants and some river stones.I also re-positioned the filter so that the intake filter is somewhat hidden behind the bubbles from the bubble disk.

Haha no worries. I hope it takes care of it too.

I've been pretty pleased so far on how much weight he is gaining. More than doubled in weight in less than a month :)

I expected the color loss though haha. I will update with some pics of my new White fish lol

I'm sure your fish looks awesome regardless of the colour.

Thanks!

It's amazing how much he eats. I've been feeding both hikari purple bag and green bag, and blood worms along with some peas. Looking forward to seeing how big he can get. Hopefully his butterfly tail gets nice and flowy.

Starting September 7th, "Sir Isaac" as my girlfriend now calls him, weighed in at 18 grams.

Now today, October 1st, he weighs in at 41 grams.

That's a total gain of 23 grams in less than a month!

Really impressed :)
