Lightbulb Old fish, new fish :)

I've been noticing a few new "freckles" on my oldest betta, Tilly. I was reading online about "black spots", just to make sure that she didn't have any symptoms of any diseases related to such spots. WELL, I read that while certain spots can mean many different things, some spots are perfectly natural and actually represent aging (or it's in their genes)! I thought that was very very interesting. AND, it made sense to me.... my betta is acting completely normal and happy... but she's got a moderate amount of little black dots. If anyone wants to look, here's her album -> http://www.bettafish.com/members/29631-bkelizabeth-albums-rip-tilly-3.html

But anyway! She definitely has more dots than she did when I bought her! I just thought that was pretty cool. Anyone else's fishies have speckles too?

It will happen... and the oposite will happen too.
I have a gorgeous pastel female who used to be a green marble and now you would think it's a completely different fish if not for her half black/half white eye.
Bettas always keep you guessing!
