Kaji's interesting color change (photo heavy)

8 posts in this topic

A couple months ago I posted concerns about Kaji's scales turning white and was told to stay calm because he had decided he wanted to change colors. I thought it'd be fun to post a little update and some pictures to show his color change, which I'm really loving. (I've always wanted a sarasa comet, does Kaji now qualify?)

 

For reference, here's a photo from when I first got Kaji when he was a less than 1" baby (he was a fair fish and had fin rot and I had to learn really quickly about things like the nitrate cycle and water changes!) :

Here's Kaji about a year and a half later, grown to about 6" sl, still orange with white fins:

Now here's Kaji when he first started his color change around Dec. 2015, causing me to freak out:

And lastly, this is Kaji today (March 2016), clearly not finished with his color change:

Excited to see where this ends up! Will he keep a couple patches of orange like a sarasa or will he turn all white? My Kaji never ceases to entertain me.

Cool! Sometimes color change can be so disappointing, but so far I've liked how mine end up. :)

I hope he turns all white - that would be awesome! He's a looker as it stands anyway. :)
