    i have 5 lyretail guppies and a couple of them seem to be changing color. I’ve never had hem so I don’t know if this is normal but I have 2 blues and 3 orange and one of the blues went from a blueish green to bright blue and now both blue ones have an orange streak by their head and two black dots and ine of the orange was yellow before and is now orange

    Any chance of pictures and short 30 second video of the fish changing colour?
    If the pictures are too big for the website, set the camera's resolution to its lowest setting and take some more. The lower resolution will make the images smaller and they should fit on this website. Check the pictures on your pc and find a couple that are clear and show the problem, and post them here. Make sure you turn the camera's resolution back up after you have taken the pics otherwise all your pictures will be small.

    If the video is too big for this website, post it on YouTube and copy & paste the link here. We can view it at YouTube. If you are using a mobile phone to take the video, have the phone horizontal so the video takes up the entire screen. If you have the phone vertical, you get video in the middle and black on either side.

    ----------------------------
    How long has the tank been set up for?
    How long have you had the fish for?

    How often do you do water changes and how much do you change?
    Do you gravel clean the tank when you do a water change?
    Do you dechlorinate the new water before adding it to the tank?

    What is the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH and GH of the tank water?
    What sort of filter do you have?
    How often and how do you clean the filter?

    Have you added anything new (fish, plants, wood, etc) to the tank in the 2 weeks before this started?
    Do you add plant fertilisers, supplements or anything else to the tank?
    Are there any other fishes in the tank?
