    So I get this BBM from the GF while I am in Germany - "hun the copper has turned black" - at first I thought it was a code for something like bring me back shoes or something.

    So she sends me a pic - my copper band has a black tingge on it like when a naso turns darker or a fox face turns darker.

    She said he was like this for a day then back to normal. He is fat as hell eats like a mo fo constantly munching (bugger leaves my apistasia alone).

    So my question is pretty simple --- ***?

    My butterflies sometimes get "stuck" on their night colouration. Wouldn't be too concerned if it's still feeding.

    I've noticed that sometimes my convicts will invert their stripes (so black/grey body with yellow/whitish stripes), usually when they fight with each other. The submissive loser then changes colour for a bit... Not sure about butterflies though...

    Hi gives the tangs a hard time if they try their cr@p, he raises his spikes and swims side ways towards them.

    Its actually quite interesting to watch.

    Wonder if he got a PK from one of them or my Trigger.

    I doubt the Trigger he is a big baby :)

    My old foxface went from black and yellow in the day to a full green grey camo pattern at night. Fish have a way of changing color to hide or perhaps could be stress induced.

    I would not stress.
