"I have two iridescent sharks 13 and 15 yrs old, 12 and 14 in. long. I have had them forever! They had outgrown their 55 gal tank and I tried to re-home them but after getting them into a new home my husband and I realized we did not want to give them up. So we went to our new friend and got our fish back, replaced them in their 55 gal tank and went shopping. They developed stress related ich which we treated with melafix in the 55 gal tank while we set up their new home. About three weeks later on Christmas morning they got their present and were moved into their new home. They got stressed and again had to be treated for ich. They were fine for about a week after that but then the smaller shark Achilles began to fade from dark gray to a very pale gray and developed a yellow coloring behind the eyes and on the fins. The water has been tested only slightly high in ammonia we are adding bacteria but the yellow coloring has lasted 10 days now. They eat fine and are active as always, I don't if the gender of either but they have always gotten along fine. Anyone ever see this yellow coloring before?"
