    Default Another BST question


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello hello again. I have another question about my three Black Skirt Tetras. I have noticed that one of my Tetras has a deeper black skirt and the other two have a brighter skirt, almost a grey with black tips. Is something wrong with them? Or is this a color variation between sexes? I wish I had a pic to show you.

    Another bit of info, the two with the grey tails seem to have a transparency to their tails. Not like glass on a house window, but more like the fogged glass of a shower door. Hope that helps. :)

    The colour of BSTs seem to fade with age...maybe the greyer fish are older.

    That would suck lol. Although I heard they can live up to 20 years, and I'm sure the lfs didn't have them THAT long. Hopefully its not a problem.

    Thank you kindly for your promt responses. :)
