Black paleatus fry?

Post by MissNoodle »

Ive had some more spawning in my cory groups...

My paleatus eggs i collected, I got some albino and the "normal" ones were black.
I'm referencing photos and the fry are much lighter in colour.

In the photo here there is 1 aeneus fry on the left, the middle ones are the paleatus, and top right is an albino paleatus fry.

Is the black colouration normal?

Interesting. I've noticed that even within a species, there can be notable darkness differences from fry to fry, but these fade with age. Here's a dark trilineatus fry I had:
