I'm here for my Dad who has a tropical fish tank (huge) but unfortunately, no internet!
He has four lemon cichlids and about a month ago he noticed that they were changing colour from vivid yellow to a dull grey especially aroung the mouth and fins.
Can someone tell me why this happens and what, if anything, can be done to get them back to the vibrant yellow they once were? Is it diet related? His water is perfect on all acounts and feeds a balanced diet. Thanks to anyone that can help.

Pictures are needed. Something like "before and after". Otherwise it's hard to say.

Anyway, these cichlids should be yellow all the time. So it can be some disease...

are there any hiding places in your tank where they can get away for periods of time, it sounds a bit stress related to me. What else do you have in the tank?
