Black gravel is a must and candy stripe you light bulb with elcetrical tape, alot of plants. That should do it but I prefer my rhom nice and shinny, he is a brilliant silver.

Dark tank equals dark fish. The lighter the tank the more a fish washs its color out. Also do not just feed him feeders feed him cut up pieces of fish or cichlids. A varied diet leads to better color.

As the Serrasalmus rhombeus matures and ages, it will turn darker.


In the wild...when in breeding mode, they will display a darker color too. :biggrin:
Turn off the lights and you'll have a darker Rhom.
Honestly, maturity and surroundings plays a huge factor in the color of your Rhom. Also different varieties of foods can help.

yes, but i think the black tape looks crapy, home depot sells thouse light covers, they have black lines over them and you just slide them over the bulb and it dims the lights.
