Losing His Calico Name :(


Recommended Posts

about 5 weeks ago I got a calico fantail

he was orange with black on his tail and on his head

but just recently I stopped feeding him a brine shrimp based food and he lost his black

I also increased the amount of light into the tank.

So now he has completely lost all his black on his head which is a substantial amount of black

can I make him get it back?

I love his black :(

I have also been feeding him more then normal considering when I got him he was very very skinny.

It might be just a color change or it is also possible that he had ammonia burns and with your good care has lost them.

I agree, that is also possible. Especially if it's happened quickly.
