    So.... I got 3 of these guys a month ago or so. I figured they were hiding in my 55 gallon somewhere as I hadn't seen them for a while. Well today I saw one... and it looks very dark brown/copper/red. What happened??? Is it sick???

    They can change depending on light/diet :)

    I did not know that! Before when I've kept them I've never seen them change color like that!
    Glad to know it's ok [ ]
