Wondering if anyone can help me out with this one, I've a pair of Firemouths that I've had a while which have now just about lost all their colour (other than their stripes n spots). Their in a Fluval 1000 tank with other comunity fish (red tail shark ,plec, rose barb gourami & yellow lab) all living happily. I had a prob with green water in the tank but thats now cleared & I've also moved out my pink convicts to another tank all the fish look healthy & I havent changed their food so don't know why ve they lost their colour .

sounds fairly ominous. Can you tell us your water parameters? (ammo, nitrite, nitrate, pH, gh, temperature)

In my experience, fish only go pale when they are in conditions which are either poor in general or are poorly matched to that fish.

Also, can you tell us how big the tank is in litres or gallons?

Finally, how big is the yellow lab?
