    Colour of chagoļ

    I bought end of last year a girin chagoļ that was a little dark for me but my koļ dealer told me that growing he will change and become olive green.
    He's growing well but the colour remain the same. How do you think he will be in the future ?
    Sorry for the quality of the first pict, but that give an idea of the colour
    The second pict is taken 30 min after the first one, but the colour never loock clear like that in my pond.

    I have notice then when the ground clearer, the colour seems to change and become also clearer, are some koļ like cameleon ?

    Marco it will never get lighter.

    I have seen many Chagoi and Soragoi especially change into Hajiro when older.
    This is a pic of my green Chagoi and it is the same colour as it was when I bought it at 6 inches......32 inches now and four years old.

    wow thats a nice big chagoi jaco, I have one just a bit on the greyer side and a few inches shorter, had him from 6 inches now in my pond for three years and about 26 inches long. Frienldy fish seem to be the chagoi's nature.

    I have a question. From my internet obervations it seems that all Jumbo Chagoi or lets say all really big Chagoi (in this case 85cm+) are green or green/grey. Maybe I am wrong but to me it looks like this.

    Thanks for your opinion/ answer!

    I have noticed the same thing, Hauns. I prefer Soragoi, but they do not seem to match the Chagoi in growth.
