This is what my carpet looked like 2 years ago when I first got it.

It shriveled up, I thought it was dying, but it just came back a darker color.

Is it changing colors again? Is this normal?

Looks like its irritated. What are you parameters?
Here's a picture of mine in my BC29

It's in the bottom left on the FTS
The other picture is from when it ate my lawnmower blennie-.-

I personally don't see a lot of maxi mini nems with good color unless they are in pretty dang good water. Every store I've seen them at they're Brown and shrivled up. :-/

Possibly but it all around doesn't look too healthy. I would feed it pieces of cleaned silverside or table shrimp about the size of the mouth. Pretty much a sugar cube size is good. I feed mine once a week and he's always been colourful and happy

Here's what it looks like today. First pic has flash on, 2nd doesn't. Haven't fed it yet, but I plan on doing that today as well as a water change, new carbon, and a poly-filter. Last pic is what I was told was blasto's & today is the best they have looked since I got them almost a month ago...found it's happy spot!!
