Hey guys i was just wondering if any of you had any ideas of why my red bellies tummies would be white. Like they are about 5 inches and there are 3 of them and their bellies are alot more white then red.. i mainly feed them Krill and was told that that was supposed to bring out the colour but it didnt, it just brought colour out on the body.. does anyone know why this can be.. FYI The fish are in a 70 gallon tank at about 75-80 temp... any help is awesome guys, thanks

Welcome to the site!!

Could be several reasons why they are white....
Post some of your water params first to give everyone an idea of what you have.
Try posting some pics as well....

Could be diet....could be water params....could be stress...could be lighting etc....

It is also true that some cultivated stocks get coloration later.
My for example were white-yellow bellied up to 5", then up to 8" they were light orange bellied and only later bright red bellied.
