    38 gallon set up January 2 this year. Fish in cycled with tetra safe start. 0 ammonia 0 nitrites 40+ nitrates due to tap water ph issue delaying water changes. 6 glow fish tetras 3 albino Corys. Multiple pond snails. Amazon swords in tank. Temp is 74. I feed glow fish flake food and wagers for the cories.

    My 1 orange glofish is turning greenish. It also has a ridge on its head. My green glofish’s fins are also getting a green tint that wasn’t there before. Is there some illness that causes that? I attached a pic but I don’t know how well you can see what I mean

    Usually the cause of colour changes in fish is diet. It's not a problem or an illness. If you don't like it, feed something different.

    Looks really neat, I think.
