    Hey Follks

    Here is a little puzzle that I don’t know the answer to, but hopefully someone at SF wil?

    When I feed my perfectly healthy young Neolamprologus leleupi on brineshrimp why does the body colour of these little fish turn from light-lemon to very dark? Once their food is fully digested the normal colour returns.

    Regards David

    I would imagine it’s the same as my S. daemon in that when they’re feeding they put their “stress colours” on.

    You could theorise that they darken themselves to avoid unwanted attention from predators or more boistrous fish while they’re in the vulnerable position of eating.

    Hey Dunc

    THANKS as that had not crossed my mind as a possibility.

    Regards David
