Red zebra lost some color 55 Gallon Tank

    my red zebra's color got a little more pale suddenly. My water parameters seem fine and he or she acts pretty normal as my other cichlids. It is the biggest cichlid i have in the tank, and nobody bully's him. I was wondering if it is normal for red zebras to change their color. it was always a peach color, but now it is more pale peach.

    Color fading from time to time isn't too uncommon for African Cichlids, How long has it been faded? Diet staying the same? Swimming like normal? "Parameters seem fine" Could you possibly post up your results? What test kit do you use?

    im not sure of the test kit, i'm not home at this time, but his color changed about two weeks ago. He acts totally normal, and all of my other cichlids look fine. The food is also the same.

    Can't honestly say what is causing it if he seems like everything is fine. Is the red zebras in the tank sexed or are you not sure yet? Could be a color change for spawning.
    Just guesses
