My new Mady's arrived the other day (friday) and had said one of them had turned pink

Well the reason why is clear

These are Harem spawners so good luck. I have 8 Oligacanthus, 1 pair and one male with 5 females. He spwns with them all.

Congrats on the spawn. I didn't know they were harem spawners. I had a nice breeding pair, but had to artificially hatch the eggs. They spawned 4-5 times and always ate the fry.
