livestock: hippo, cherub angel, two grammas (one not faded), rock beauty and two scarlet cleaners. I love them so much l feel immense guilt when l eat salmon...I can’t get the faded spots to show in a photo. Parameters are all ideal. It’s 40g, marineland 450 hob dual biowheel and aquamaxx 1.5 hob skimmer. I’ve heard the fading can be caused by fluctuating pH but mine is stable at 8.1. l’ve had this problem with the species before, never resolved. The fish is happy, eating everything, behaving normally. I’m mystified.
I wasn’t relating the pods to the fading. Separate issue altogether.This is very vague, in order to provide a better diagnosis you should provide us with some more information such as: parameters, pictures of specimen, and etc. Please read this link to help us help you.
It’s possible that your fish has some other issues other than nutrition, on top of that a royal gramma doesn’t rely on pods as it’s diet, thus it’s additionally possible that their is a deficiency in what your are feeding it.
