Why is my leopards colors looking pale? When i got it, its upper part was a nice bright orange color now its looking pale. Been a little over a month now since introduced in the tank. other fish in the tank leave it alone so dont think its stress issue. I feed rods food and it eats like a pig. I feed about a half inch piece twice a day. Tank is stable, good amount of sand. all other live stock is thriving. Last time i tested....about week ago. CAL 480 ALK 8.6 DKH MAG 1350 NITRATE 0 PHOS 0 I just realized how old my nitrate test kit is so i may need to get a new one...hopefully its not a big difference. Any idea what the problem might be? Would hate to lose it especially if its something that i might be overlooking.
