As per the title I have a friend that keeps a nano tank and he recently purchased a neon goby from Big Al's. I did not see the fish from the store, but I have seen it in his tank much to his concern and my amazement.

The goby is blaze orange/red!?

Again I did not see it from the store, but my friend says it was normal colour to start but now is red? Anyone know what / why this is?

my only guess is maybe some sort of mating call or signal, or maybe its from what he feeds the goby.

just complete guesses though

that's what worries me, a signal, like mad or scared!

what size tank is he in?

if he is in a tank larger than bout 30 gallons he probably will want some friends. a trio would be good.

but that might not have anything to do with the color
