What happened to my Pseudotropheus flavus

8 years 2 months ago #33066 by Nuchal Man
I've also had fish which were half black. While it no doubt could be genetic in some cases (think 1/2 black angels), I think in many of these cases where it is not a heavily line bred species it is likely nerve damage as a result of injury/trauma that affects melanin receptors.

Unfortunately, I don't believe there is a way to reverse this, but it really shouldn't affect the quality of life of your fish. I guess it could affect the fish if it is a male as the ladies might find him less attractive. I first noticed this in one of my Caquaetia once when he was around 2" and he had no problem growing up into a healthy 10" fish.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

I am going to a guess and say it might be one of these
- 1. Stress caused by a more dominant fish
- 2. Breeding color or dress
- 3. Stress caused by water quality or disease

Just like rebooting a computer - the simplest way to fix a large number of issues is to perform a large water change. Hence why I change 80% of my water weekly it's just like rebooting your computer each week - lol.

Quote from www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/p_flavus.php

"Males tend to be moody in their coloration, not always displaying the bright yellow coloration. It can also take them a while (and in the company of females) to color up brilliantly"
