Re: Auratus changed color #2
How sure are you that this is a female? Males start out the same colour as females then as they mature the colour fades, yellow turns to brown and eventually black which may be what is happening here. If you're 100% certain it's female, then the fading may down to stress as she's still aware of the socolofi and trying to get to it.
