Kalambo?
 
I don't know a hole lot about Troph but I'm learning. I just got a small group of Kalambo (my first Tropheus) and will be adding to them soon. I was watching them to day as they eat and noticed that one has red around the eye.The rest have yellow. Is the one with the red still a Kalambo or is something else?:S

any input would be great as like i said this is my first go at troph :thumbsup:
Thanks

hmm yeah, does it appear to you as if it may be blood behind it causing the red coloration?

not at all. It has a shine to it. Its definitely color.

interesting. the only time ive seen something like this was from blood behind the eye due to an infection. hopefully someone else will chime in on this one.

Its not behind the eye its a color highlight over the eye. Where the other 5 fish have yellow this one has red.
