I have three gold dust mollies in my dirted 29 gallon tank, ones newer with its bright black and gold colors, the other two have been in there for months and are like a pale yellow and have like no black left. I’ve been feeding some food that’s supposed to enhance color. Idk what to do.... any ideas what the problem may be?

I’m assuming your tank is cycled. Fish color fading is usually due to stress. Is there any fish aggression. How often do you feed your fish. Are they earning normally?

The male chases the other two, and he’s one of the pale ones, but the gourami in there doesn’t bother the mollies and neither do the glow light tetras, I feed them everywhere from once a day to once every two or three, just depends on how I’m feeling lol they seem fine besides the faded colors
