I heard that hissers colors depends on what food that have been raised on.

Anyone know of any foods , or substances that cause them to change there normal orange?

I have heard of people experimenting with feeding various inverts color-enhancing tropical fish food to change, or at least brighten, the colors. Not sure if they've been successful, though.

it appears so, becuase I have seen pictures of diffrent variations
in brightness
from dark orange to bright orange to black.

anyways my plan is to create 3 colonys

one for basic feeding

two for types of coloring variation and behavior obeservation

I'm pretty sure that this is true because I have a few male hissers that are almost totally red. What I put in my roach mix is near random so this can explain how I only have a few red ones. Maybe sometimes the mix is lacking in something, maybe somtimes it has too much? Either way I like the red ones, so I dont think ill be changing my habbits any time soon.

Food Colour

I know that the colour of earthworms can be changed to bright orange or green, just from feeding them that colour of food. I had snails for a while, and when I fed them carrots, their poop was bright orange! Try feeding them food of a certain colour (but is still good for them) and see what happens.
