Question Happy when dark?

My sister told me that when bettas are really happy that they turn a dark color. Is that true?

White or cellophane bettas must spend their time miserable, then!

Not always. There are so many variables in it. When most bettas get stressed they can fade color, or turn dark. Most of the time (but not always) when a fish is happy it gets brighter. Also depends on the color genes in it. IMO unless you have a black or dark blue, darker isn't always better.

That's what I thought. Thank you.
