    Default Bright Red Jewel???

    i came home from dinner and looked in my loach tank and my jewel cichlid was BRIGHT blood red i couldnt beleave it i mean i have seen her/him darken up or turn red but not like this she was bright blood red and her blue and green spots where brighter and it kinda looked like she/he had green rings around its eye's.....so what or why is this ....Happy or angry or horney....in the pic you cant really tell how bright she/he is but you can see her/his green and blue dots are brighter

    wel i guess you can see she is red but she is brighter in person

    yeah myjewels change colors... and like the above picture mine has dark blotches that come and go... ive noticed that the male is usually the one with the dark blotfches and the female usually turns red... when my female was wanting to spawn she turned BRIGHT red and her belly got really big and was a yellow color.

    This fish are the one responsible for my sickness called MTS or Multiple Tank Syndrome. They used to look like that when they were in my 20G, looks like fish with too much red lipstick and blush on. Here r some pic. of my jewel fish.
