Hey all, I have noticed that sometimes my piranha will change color , not all of them just a few. They are all deep red under the belly and then sometimes they will change to all white?
Their tails will also lose color!! any info plz as to why?

I though it was the mood they were in????

when reds turn white it useualy means they are stressed. when they turn dark with a red belly they are comfertable. and when thier tails and body turns black they are horny

I believe it is like many fish, and colour changes can indicate either stress, warning colours, fright colours, sleep colours....etc.... I know this is how cihclids work...P's should fall into this category too
