I actually kind of hope that there will be further colour development. Just being shiny from head to tail is simply.. boring. 😜

Fish needs to have red pigment cells to get red color, just food won't do.
Agreed, can't enhance what not there to begin with. It would basically be the same as feeding a blood parrot foods that boost blue color, if it ain't got it to begin with it won't suddenly develop it. Honestly if I was the OP I would be happy with how he looks already, I like the nice steel blue all over him with the well defined flowerspots. Hard to find em with such a clear, cut and dry definition between colors.
