Wait... do butterfly bettas change color...or...?

Is my Ghengis a marble butterfly VT? He is supposed to be this nice maroon color, on his body and cellophone tail... but his tail is now tipped with a soft baby blue and the maroon is turning lavender!!!!

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Butterflies are a type of marble Betta if I remember correctly. My fish, Puff, was blue with white butterfly pattern, but now he is completely metallic blue.

I am a male sapient being.

Hmmm ok. Because he used to have this nice soft brown with a tinge of maroon body, then the maroon darkened a little... now he is going purple but staying a butterfly...

Bettas in general tend to change color, particularly if they are young and then placed in an environment with good food and clean water. My dalmatian female came to me with only 2 spots and she now has 5, and counting!



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
