 all  those  tetras  are  looking  behaving  healthy  though.  any  problem???   Surprised

 There  are  two  things  that  might  have  happened.....
 
 1)  Your  friends  tank  might  have  softer  water  than  yours.  So  the  fishes  are  more  healthy  and  showing  off  spawning  colors.  Or....
 
 2)

 One  LFS  here  accepts  fish  back  and  gives  credit  for  new  purchases...  Have  seen  pink  convicts  turn  to  red  color  when  the  customers  return  it.  Something  in  the  food  probably  increases  red  coloration  on  the  fishes...

 i  have  seen  silver  angelfish  turn  red  after  reading  colour  foods.  the  pellets  were  bright  red,  forgot  the  brand.  the  goldfish  also...  so  some  food  makers  are  adding  an  ingredient  for  colour  enhancement  that  actually  turns  the  fish  a  different  shade  than  natural.  
 
 i  am  sure  this  cannot  be  good,  but  then  who  will  take  the  fish  and  investigate  if  it  suffered  any  advere  effects  or  not?  if  it  lives  long,  we  presume  it  wasn't  affected.  my  grandma  had  diabetes  for  25  years,  she  complained  all  the  time.  but  looking  at  her,  no  one  would  have  said  she  was  suffering....
