    food is not the only factor that enhances the color. water para, lighting and it would depend on the gene i guess.. LFS would suggest centipedes.. i wouldnt bet on it 100%.. good luck!

    High quality food and water are going to produce the best looking and healthiest fish. Lots of water changes and a high quality pellet are the way to go. I would feed New Life Spectrum. I had a silver on it at the shop I was running for only a few weeks and when a guy came in and saw it he paid what we were asking on the spot. When I fed it for him he bought the largest canister of that food we had in stock at the time on the spot as well.

    my fish just got done with the prawn diets, he is getting back to pellets so its good time to try that new life spectrum..
    i never alter his diets, he choose his food and i give what he eats
