Hello, sorry I haven't been around lately, been very busy with the new school year. Plus I lost my internet.

Anyways, quick questions. My female green Texas has turned half white and I'm wonder why. Been going on a few weeks. Is this a breeding mood? Will it go away? I've seen other Texas look this way, so I'm sure it's normal..I just can't find a solid answer on the net.

Additional info.
No changes except took down the drapes in the room to let in light.
Singleton in a 55, no live plants. Approx 3 years old. Weekly water change @50%. She's a digger, does her own aqua scaping. Only eats worms and shrimp. In general a pissed off fish.

Any info appreciated!

Can you post a picture? I have carpintis that I bought as green texas, but they always turn very dark when breeding. Imo faded color usually can be attributed to some type of stress.

Yep, she looks like a black and white cookie! Her white is a little whiter than yours but yep that's what she looks like.

I don't see any eggs in there now, but there is a spot behind some decor where she has blown the sand away to the bottom of the tank.

I hope it goes away!
