I have been staining fish tissues fixed in Davidsons with H&E, and the researcher would like the eosin to be more intense.  Our standard protocol works well for our own tissue, but the fish look much more washed out.  I am using alcoholic eosin Y, have tried both water and alcohol before and I have varied the alcohol differentiation steps after the Eosin.  I also extended the time in Eosin and increased the wash after bluing to make sure the sections are not basic.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you.
