new pale clownfish

Ezzy1986(NSW Aust)November 3, 2005

a friend picked up a couple of percula clowns for me at a fish store i was able to get to

they are much MUCH paler than what i've previously had...

one of them is particularly small and only has two white bands? the one around his tale is not there and the one around his middle only goes halfway around (the top half)

is this normal?

will they get brighter?

Some of my fish have been pale when I bought them and brightened up later. Especially tetras and guppies. I think in some cases they were very young. One of the places I buy fish sells tetras half grown.

I don't know if your fish will develop any further white stripes. But I think it's likely the colour would brighten up. Perhaps they are young too.

Fish tend to pale from stress too.

How wide are the black bands on that "percula" clown ? true percula clowns have wider black bands and are not bright orange, they are yellower.
