Tempermental Fishie

I just got another betta fish this week, I chose him for his dashing red color. my two other betta fish are greenish blue and purplish blue, so I was excited to get a warmer colored betta.

Naturally, my tempermental new fishie has decided that he would like to be green, so now he has neon green stripes on his fins and some green tint on his scales. -.-
to be honest, I think he looks more dynamic now, but I have a feeling that if Charry knows that he'll change again.

I don't have a good enough quality of camera to take a picture that shows the green, and he gets all hyper if he sees me, making it hard to take a good photo.

O.o I can't imagine any of my fish changing colors like that that fast. Maybe they're a result of stress?

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

I hope not, I don't want my new fish to be stressed. I've seen these stripes on pictures of red betta fish, but those stripes were thicker and more pronounced, so I hope it's normal.

The neon green stripes popping up overnight would worry me. I have 3 of my own and none have changed that fast myself. Pudge is becoming a more solid blue, but if give it another month....

I'm not sure if they turned that color overnight, maybe I jut overlooked it in the dirty, circular cup.
