I would get some spirulina flakes or Hikari Spirulina something or other, because the spirulina will aggressively enhance a fish's color. Although, if you haven't seen any color change, it could also be genetic. :huh:

I also agree with the spirulina as being the best color enhancer--for the most brilliant orange.

Of course if you have a white fish--it will make yellow or gold areas so it is best for orange fish.

In my signature, you can see my two orange fish--very bright orange from spirulina flakes from Goldfish Connection but my white telescope now has a yellow head, gold over her eyes and gold pectoral fins. She used to be completely white.

:D

I fed mine chicken pellets for a while... but I had to stop when they grew wings and started clucking.

They're garbage guts... they'll eat anything. :D

Okay so there was no clucking involved. But I did feed them chicken pellets for a while and they loved them and they grew heaps and they do have really wide front fins.

But I wouldn't recommend it. Chicken pellets have lots of protein but they break down and pollute the water horribly. I was just out of fish food.

Chicken pellets are the staple diet of the freshwater crays they farm for restaurants, nothing else has the same nutritional value for $.

I was just illustrating that you can feed them anything. Better to feed them goldfish food tho.
