My angelfish is clear

    I have read that sometimes with stress and lighting changes, some angelfish's color can change.

    When i saw the angelfish @ my lfs, he was grey.
    We brought him home, (and idk if it was the stress from the move) but he turned clear.

    He has been with us for over a month now, but still has not gone back to his original color.

    Sometimes he is completely clear, and other times he has darker fins, and a dark stipe on his body.

    Im worried that the stress has done some permanent damage to him.

    My water paramaters are great, and he seems to get along with my other 2 angelfish (seems like theyre a school lol)[​IMG][​IMG]

    That looks to be it's normal color and that is a beautiful angel if you ask me. The darkening of the fins and the dark stripe are just it's excited pattern. And it will get more blue in it's fins as it grows.

    Angels that have stripes will fade due to mood/stress. She appears to have nipped dorsal and anal fin. I would be worried about that. Is she being picked on? What other fish are in the tank?

    My angel fish have both had this happen aswell, been so worried because recently had a Dwarf Gourami that went grey, had popeye, scales look prickly and then died later that day, then later on the angel fish started losing their colour.
