    I wonder if anyone can answer this, I recently bought 3 Siamese flying fox's two went into my 200l and one went into my 300l but as they have grown I have noticed a difference between them, the two in the 200 are exactly as they should look, proper colours etc, but the one in the 300 looks different same shape but where the other two have a light stripe then a dark strip down their bodies the other one has a very definite orange/goldfish stripe running the length of its body, I want to find out if it is just due to the tanks having different colour substrates or do I have two types of fish?

    If you go to this website, you will see this picture:

    I assume that is what you mean by the red stripes. No it is not your substrate, it is a variation of the breed of fish.

    Have a great Sunday!!:;smileyfrog
