    He is very milky looking. I bought him and a female a few weeks ago. The female is becoming darker but he is still very milky looking. I'm worried about him. He doesn't seem to be shedding. My bn pleco had attached itself to him at one point (I removed him immediately) and I'd imagine it would kick start the shedding process and it hadn't. Any thoughts?

    Lucy could you also post a photo of what a real egg patch looks like? I want to search my tank for some but I have snails aswell so I'm not sure what all is going on in my tank. Hahaha

    What do you mean egg patch?
    If there were eggs they'd be floating at the top, stuck on plants or decorations or laying in the gravel.
    Frogbreeder has a picture here:

    He really is pale, isn't he? I'm not sure what is going on.
    What size tank are they in? Readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?
    Any other tank mates?
    Do you still have the 4 listed in your aquarium information?

    saw your other thread.
    They were in the same tank?
