if he becomes dominant in the tank he will still color up

for best color you need one dominant with about 4 females

alot of people use two tanks the main and a coloring tank....

put fish in coloring tank wait till one becomes dominant when that happens move him to the main then wait for the next one to become dominant and move him to the main and so on for the rest
