It will start out light yellow/orange and later turn red.They will start to change or get patterns at 6+ weeks give or take..Also keep an eye out for the lighter/white nose's in the kohaku's although some noses are red. Some of my Kohaku fry are really showing a pattern and some are sloooow..

Marie,
I have seen your photos and most of my fry look a lot like yours do. Except for the recent photos of your little Kohaku's.
I have no red color on any of my fry yet at all, and there was a lot of red spawning. :yes:

I don't have red but some have darker orange patterns. The ones with the most color are in lily pots with no filters:rolleyes:
