Rep: Gail has started on the right path
Default color change, getting ready to morph?

I have two tiger larvae, the smaller one is a light olive with lighter splotches. Over the last two days, his coloring has changed alot. His whole body has lightened up, the splotches are taking on a pale golden color and more are appearing. It also looks like his gills have shortened a bit but his tail is still flat.
Does this sound like he maybe starting to morph, how long can this take with a tiger?

Yes it sounds like it's morphing. It happens pretty fast. Sometimes feeding can be a bit challenging during the transition.

So far he is still eating like a champ. Guess I need to get a cage ready and put some more rocks in his tank for when he does come all the way out. Thanks:)

A floating cork bark island helps too!
