Betta color change

Post by SiennaBay on Thu 7 Oct 2010 - 4:37

Me again! Is it normal for a betta's color to change over time? My Flame used to have more turquoise in his fins and now, two months later, he barely has any. Do you think the color will come back?

Yeah, especially if he's young yet, their colors do tend to change slightly from time to time.

Yep this is normal it means that you have a betta with the "jumping gene" or "marble gene" , its not too common but he's fine don't worry, it might come back depending on where his jumping gene moves to and when! take a look at this:
