How can I make my GSP's belly less grey?

Hi I have a juvenile GSP about 5cm (2 inch) long. I started making the water more alkali, a little more brackish. And also started feeding him mysis shrimp in additional to bloodworms and the occasional snails. But is it possible to make his belly totally white? With no grey?

How exactly did you cycle the tank? Water parameters?
Some GSPs don't always go completely white. Mine used to grey when it ate.
