They are not as colorful as the German Ram but I find them also quite colorful...here is one on good coloring:

The deep yellow on the stomach and bright vibrant red (some have more of a purple hue) So they are not that colorless...

How many do you have? If you have a group they will show less colors other than the dominant one - if you have a pair then you can reach vibrant colors.

Feed a good varied diet and they should color up in no time.

I do have the other fish, that I would also like to add, also I liek being able to tell the difference between the fish, it just makes them more original, otherwise 6 would rock

Yeah, they will color up really nice, just give them time and a high quality diet.
