    Oh, that's why. How many months/years you think before they do color up? I was just confused if they are or not congos. xD

    When I got the last additions to the school, they all looked like the two in the bottom two pictures. After 5 months they are now starting to color up a little. They are now looking a little more colorful than the one in the top pic

    I don't know how old they were when I got them

    I hope this helps a little

    I guess mine are just a little too young to color up. Thanks Cliff! Mine are only 3 months old in my tank, so maybe wait a little more longer.

    I had this issue in my tank. I bought some that looked exactly like that thinking they were young and had yet to develop their colours but I took them into the aquarium and they said they're all females and won't colour up much more than that, apart from getting a nice greenish-silver sheen on them. The ones they had there were about 4cm long and already had their male colours coming in and their fins growing long. Yours look like females to me.

    Well, its fine with me if they're females. I am still giving them time to color up if they will. Just wanted to know if they were real congos or not.

    But yes, I think they are still young because they were half that size (or maybe not even) when I bought them 4 months ago.

    Yes, I have half-and-half at the moment and the females are still really pretty. Pretty green sheen on them, especially when they're in with real plants, I find it makes them look even brighter.
