    Default Why is my CR head not red?

    I'm a beginner in keeping CR. Recently got from a friend some S grade. The whites on them are good n thick but I notice most of them having no or less red(not solid red) on the head portion. Why is that so? Is it due to water parameter or it's just the breed?

    Perhaps they are not S grade then.
