Colour of Livingstoni

Post by palmierg » Sun May 22, 2005 12:16 pm

Hello. I have 4 Livingstoni cichlids. There colour was light brown with dark brown patches all over their body. Now one of them, which grew more than the other 3 is turning to a bluish colour especially on the face. They are 9 months old and the size of this fish is around 5 inches. Is this a normal pocess or is something wrong? Thanks in advance for any help.
