It's colors are already very decent!
And individual fish can adapt over time, which may have been the case, but your best choice is always getting the proper school.

Yup, that's a male alright
He will color up once he settles in to his new home and has a chance to hang out with other congos
Congos are one of my favorite tetrasIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Kudos to you for giving the lonely congo a new home
IMO, his coloring looks really good at this point...he's a pretty boy, I really want congos if I can ever get a big enough tank

Rather than be unhappy at the store alone, he might as well be alone in a tank where he will eventually have friends...glad you decided to bring him home. I like them too, was very disappointed when I lost mine - they are not the hardiest fish around so don't make the mistake I did and forget to treat your water with dechlor - even tho I added Prime as soon as I saw there was a problem (a couple minutes, tops), they didn't pull through. I didn't lose anything else.20gal long planted community
