    Hello there! So a couple months ago I bought a pair of keyholes (not breeedig unsure of the sex of both) and they were about an inch a piece now about 3 months later they're both about an inch and a half ish. They're doing very good in my tank but one of them has started looking wierd. I understand that when they get stressed they can turn a dark brown and they have before but gone right back to normal. But now one of them has an odd brown splotchy pattern to him/her and the other is abnormal cream color with distinct dark keyhole. Any advice on why this is? All of my fish seem happy healthy and colored perfectly other than this one so I am very concerned about his/her health :( but their behavior is just as normal as every day. Thanks!

    It looks like stress to me. Have you checked your water parameters? What size is your tank?

    It could be that there isn't enough cover and the other one is bullying this one.
