White calvus....

Recommended Posts

hi, im looking at buying some white calvus and just wanted to know if it was common for white calvus 4-5cm to sometimes look like black calvus ???? or is that just a mood swing or adjusting to surroundings ??

there arent to many around to compare so just dont want to buy something that realy isnt ...

cheers

Hi Peter

I have spoken with a WC breeder and he said when young they will look grey

I would think that at 5cm they should be showing the white colouring as they would be

close to spawning size and adult colour should stabilising

if they are in their usual tank where there is no stress the colour should be correct to type

if they are being stressed or moved around then the colour could drop
