One of my ocellaris clownfish (who I believe is going to be the female) has his stripes turning a faded pink? My other one seems to have a green tinge to him. I wanted to know if this is normal? They are both healthy, actively eating and swimming around.
I have a 29g tank with about 30-35 pounds of liverock and a few zoanthids. I also have a six line wrasse, a cleaner shrimp and a substantial CUC of snails and hermits. 0 nitrites 0 ammonia and about 6-10ppm nitrates. I use an actinic blue light in my tank as well.
I recently did my weekly 25% water change as I've been doing for the past few months and everything seemed normal.
Now my clownfish's stripes seem to be exhibiting pastel pink and green? There seems to be nothing wrong health wise as they seem very healthy, are eating normally, and are doing their usual mating ritual. I'm not sure if it's the light that I'm using that is making them look different colors or what, but I hope there is nothing wrong with them.
I'm attaching photos where you can kind of make out the pink, and you can see the green in the other guy.
Does anyone know about this? Is it a normal thing when they've been exposed to a blue light?
