Firemouth with purple on its lips
Is it normal for a cichlid to have a purple coloration sporadically form on its lips? Every once in a while my firemouth's lips partially turn dark purple (almost splotchy). It has happened off and on since I've had him. I was wondering if anyone has ever seen this happen to other cichlids and if it is normal. If not, what can cause this to happen?
