As they grow they shed their scales to get bigger

my guy is over 10 yrs old he was all orange with no markings when I got him way back than , I won him at a fair
now after he grew he is almost a albino except for his orange spot on his head
and let me tell you he is a character
My wife calls him carrot top now
he is housed in a 35 gal hex
to date he has out grown 4 other tanks and is still growing
he loves frozen pea's
his whole diet is vegetarian now and maybe a fly or 2 when he can catch them

I had a fantail that turned all white after a few years. He was fine though. Still alive few couple years later, although he has since been re-homed to a large pond at a friends house because he was about 9" long.
