speaking of your chocolate betta, are his fins brown or orange? my DeT is brown/black bodied with iridescent blue. his fins are dull pumpkin orange, the caudal tail has a smoky grey exterior half. i dont even know if hes a chocolate or an orange type

When I picked out my current betta I actually didn't care about his color that much, I just wanted the smallest one because I thought he was the youngest. I love him so much, but I like the ideas of certain colors and have in mind what I want after he passes. I hate it when they change colors. It actually really bothers me. A lot. I would pick out a betta because I like the color, I don't want it to change ever. And it drives me crazy that you never really know if it's a marble or not...

Just finished reading the article. It was very good! That's the reason I will never buy a "pure white" betta from a pet store. Those white ones are notorious for changing!

Oh don't get me started on white bettas. I named Snowy because he was white as snow when I brought him. He changed colors 4 times during his life. XD

There's a reason my avatar picture has stayed, even though Ghost himself doesn't look a BIT like that anymore. That's how he looked when I got him, and I loved the colors. But he's a marble (like I knew what that was at the time!) and he swiftly moved on into new colors.

He's probably my second favorite now behind my color stable office pal Chicory, but yeah, I was a little bummed when Ghost stopped being the fish that caught my eye. Being aware of the trait makes me look at colors twice, and twice more

so far i only had 3 stable coloured betta. Osiris but then again i didnt have him too long before a bloating sickness took him. my DT Nelliel ie avy has a few more blue body scales and reduced fin coverage slow to grow back. my VT has red on the anal and pectoral but remains royal blue and black for the most part.
