I think they all have a variation of those colors I think.. At some times, my T. grans will appear a lot darker or lighter.. I always just assumed that it had to do with shedding as sometimes I've found her shed lying around in the tank. But I agree, the dark brown and gold bellies are gorgeous. I'm also a fan of T. rivularis (which I don't think is existent in the hobby) but the colors are nearly black on the dorsal side and blood orange/red on the ventral side :)

Default Re: Your favorite coloration of T.granulosa?

I voted brown with orange belly and brown with gold (yellow?) belly, though i do really like dark brown with an orange belly as well. However probably my favorites are the "golden" ones, as i call them, which are a light brown, but that's not a poll option.
