139. Top 5 Late Blooming Freshwater Fish

Let’s face it – some of the most beautiful fish look plain and boring at your local fish store. It’s not until you bring them home, condition them, and spoil them, that they truly shine. Some species go from brown and dull to bright and illuminating in the right conditions! Others are shy and evasive, until you allow them to settle in at home and suddenly they’re bold and confident! This episode is all about the overlooked favorites that can become incredible if you take the time to condition them.
