    Will all the baby malawi look like the mother or the father when they grow up. At the moment my 5 week old fry is all yellow and dull. Will they still get more colour?

    Well since both mom and dad contributed to the babies, they could look like either, or a mix of the two.

    Remember, however, that 5 week old fish are very, very young. It can take months before the fish bear any resemblance to their adult colouration. The males will eventually colour up more than the females once they reach sexual maturity. When this happens, depends on the species.
