It could take a year or longer.

WOW, I didn't realize that it could take that long... I'm wondering if a diet high healthy food packed with carotenoids would shorten that time?

ZeeZee bought some fry from me. I kept telling her to be patient. It take some time for the yellow to turn to orange and for them to get solid black. It takes patience to grow out any trophs.

Makes sense. Been a while since I've grown any out to breeding size.

I have 12 Pemba from 1 WC Female and a Beautiful F1 male that came from Greg's HP colony. The only 2 I saved and they were both female. But that will give me a good start on building a colony from them.

It's what rabbits eat to bulk up.

Naturally occurring pigments in plants, algae and some bacteria.
