Water like Vil have mentioned is a critical key towards the success of tanning

Timing is another...doing it at the right time, right place will make it easier

ur emperor is of very gd genes...can see the tummy area although the rims are still not too defined...its still very impressive...

top tanning have their believers hence I do not wan to discount the credibility
Thanks for compliment. That's lot of research & hardwork u contributed here. Would have up u again, but still has to spread more around.
Other than tanning & water condition, I would think diets that could help red development as of equal important for red. It is believe that agents for enhancing of red/orange come more from food that red eat.
My tank is lcoated near window, thus other than tanning lighting on top of tank, it got strong natural diffuse lighting from outdoor.

MP contain carotenoid?, pellets may have astaxanthin, etc. These will help red development. If aro doesn't eat MP. we could feed enriched pellets to BF, dry shrimps, etc.

excellent red there! I believe the light source from window helps like a form of side tanning. More natural way than hanging a light at the front glass...

From my observation visiting some bro's house where they dun use lights to tan, just sunlight from side... top is sheltered.

I agree too. My other red located indoor don't seem to develop coloration at the belly zone. Still whitist. This one probably need side tanning.

You mean there is still something wrong with the light placement? Can you kindly advice?

What you said is true, bro. Sometime when we went to LFS, you can see most mature fish with TLC can give out very good developement. I believe for red, the older it is, the better is it.

Recent batch of VIP reds probably mean something.
If not gene factor, then red could be enhanced. Just a trade secret?
