    Default Cardinals question.


    0 Not allowed!
    Good morning all, is it normal for cardinal tetras to appear a little washed out or faded in colour when the lights first get turned on.

    Their colour is normal after a few minutes.

    Thanks in advance

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    They lose their color at night to help protect them from predators. It makes them harder to see and keeps from drawing attention to themselves. Sometimes they will be a complete whitish color when the lights first come on. It happens with neons as well. No worries!

    Yep, it's normal. I think almost all tetras do that. They also become pale when they are stressed.

    Yes Sailor it is normal. They are a colorshifting species that uses translucent coloration shifting to protect themselves from nocturnal predators... Alot of the time this shift won't be realized as sunlight shining in on the tank will trigger the daily coloration shift.....
