Did you also "prep" the compressicauda as the blue-stripes? I have done no such thing as the two male pictiventris are still fighting eye infections. All temps and feeding have remained constant throughout the year. There is some minor improvement in one, the other (Orange phase) is still about the same. Notwithstanding, they all continue to eat, grow and increase weight/size. The most dramatic growth is in the females of all species. While the food intake of each is relatively the same the males look like strings and the females have taken on a robust, almost massive appearance.
