Subject: golden tetra
does anyone know why golden tetra that bred in captivity loose their
color ? the fishes that i saw in my LFS seemed to loose their color and
looked pale, not silvery as shown in the book. Does anyone know why this
happen, and what should i do to make the color appear ?
The golden color is caused by some type of skin parasite, as I recall. It
does not affect the fish (other than it's color), is not passed on to the
young, and is not contracted by other fish. All the gold gold tetras you
see are wild caught.
