    Here is a couple pictures of my Zonatums. There color has changed. I first thought that another fish was picking off the scales. The fish has no body wounds and eats very well. Has anyone seen or can explain this change in color. I have 4 total. One has turned completely pink. The other as you can see is losing his color. The other 2 a perfectly fine and seem to have paired up some, at least they are always together.

    So it appears after much more knowledgeable people have looked at the thread that the fish are in fact Fenestratum. These were purchased from the fish store down in Glen Burnie, Maryland area called House of Tropicals
