What color is it suppose to be? Some are green, some are rose. I have seen cream to brown ones as well. Silversides are minnows. You can get them froozen from the LFS. Also, what type of lighting do your have? BTA do not require strong MH light, but I think you need at least PC to make them happy. They rely on light as a food source and for good color, although no to the extent of seabes or LTA. If you are using NO floursent light, it will need more to regain color. They can slowly starve to death without proper light. HTH...Lando

Thanks lando. I'm using PC for my lighting. It came standard with the tank setup I have. So far it's looking good but as for the color it's supposed to be, I'm not sure. It looks as if it's supposed to be off white or maybe white for that matter. Thanks for clearing up the matter that silversides are minnows. thanks

No problem, you still want to double check the watts per gal. of lighting and make sure you have at least three for the BTA. Keep us posted and let us know if it eats. Lando
