I'm sure they got around another week before they are close to freeswimming. I'm pretty sure I will keep this batch to see how they do at raiseing up to a nice size. I know the picture that Greg put up when he first imported the parents(only picture I've seen of them turned full color) it is strikeing!
My two pair haven't turned yellow like that yet but the two males seem to be developeing a sheen starting from the lower part of the body and going up. They are actually a light blue(very light)in that photo from Greg the blue is in the dorsal and along the edge is a much deeper yellow line.

This is a good idea. It will increase your knowledge of the behavoir and morphological growth patterns in numerous ways if you pay attention enough. Which I'm sure you will. You seem like that type.

Are "morphological growth patterns" like growth rings in a tree? Do you have to cut the fish in half to expose these patterns?

I'm seriously asking you what you mean by that phrase because I don't know what it is.

Hi Eddie. I just want to know what these morphological growth patterns are and what they're good for.

I'm tellling... At this point it's hard to tell what to take his comments as... Mostly sarcasm.... but if someone can't tell what those words imply and why any of it would be important in the first place, I just don't know what to say about that.

Well Sunny I believe what Andrew was refering to is the morph(form) ology(study) of the different (colormorph) of a certain fish as it matures.
In ichthology this helps in identification to some extent but for complete identification it takes much more as scale count along the lateral line head structure, tooth form , different fin ray count and much more.

Ed, I honestly didn't think that this had to be said. Sunny likes to try and instigate so don't let him lead you into this stuff and make you an accomplice. I know that you Guys are partially Loyal to one another being both from the same area but please don't encourage his behavoir. It's highly unwelcome by most. No offense of course, if you enjoy it.

Thanks!
