Turquoise Rainbows

Was given the choice between 2 centimetres ones and 5 cm.
Chose 5cm (not sure why I did that) - and it was a small hole in the wall fish shop so I couldn't see the fish clearly.
Upon bringing them home - their colours are quite dull - will they ever recover?

I ask that question as some fish never improve their colours - example red line torpedoes.

Hard to say. I’ve had rainbows that colored up after a couple weeks acclimating to my tank and some that never did. Some varieties don’t get good color until they are mature/breeding.

Same BosemanI gain Color after a while , but the Irian Reds have to wait for maturity.
I’m concerned about my turqoise ... I got six and all have little Color.
Will probably wait a few weeks and then bring the ones which don’t improve back to the fish shop.
