Depends on the fish and age. That's why scientists are hesitant to separate these geo-varieties from the main sci name; S. rhombeus, because at maturity they all possess those red eyes.kamekazi Posted Today, 10:40 AM
At what size does the sparkles go away?? Will it become dark and grey?

Well, I'm no Frank, but yes the sparkles will go away and the eyes will get deep blood red. I've got a 9 inch that probably looks the same as yours except for the eyes.

I just got a 6 inch black diamond rhom and it has a lot of irredescent speckles all over it. Will the shiny silver part of the fish go away with age? Will it become dull and grey? The eyes are deep orange. Will they eventually turn blood red?
