So here's the scoop.
Last week, when I did my pwc
one of my Otos kind of got itself trapped in the corner where I was vacuuming (it wasn't really trapped, but it apparently felt like it was), and of course immediately freaked out and turned almost white. I moved off the area so he could calm down and get his/her wits about him.
Now, one week later, it's definitely not that almost white color anymore, but still very gray looking.
It's feeding fine, and has a nice fat belly, and otherwise looks healthy.
Does it sometimes take a long time for them to regain color, or is there likely something else going on? Is it possible it still feels stressed from that incident (even with it's 8 second memory, or whatever it is!!)?
Could it simply just stay that color for the rest of it's life?
