    Hi Matt,

    Question on tank backgrounds - do you find your fish darkening to match the black background? I switched from black to no background precisely for that reason.

    That happen to me I got my Hans Brilliant turquoise home and after a few days the started to turn black. I had black substrate and background painted black. Charged to a blue with white sand and they are back. Still a little stress due to the change but starting to eat and adjust to new environment.

    This is before with the Black Background and substrate

    This is after I replaced the background and substrate.

    It's common for Discus to camouflage to a darker or lighter color, especially in the wild as they have to hide from predators.
