Looks like constipation (or premature dropsy) and ammonia burns. Or possibly the gillsare just pigmentation...I have seen bettas with really red/fuschia gills underneath white before.

Thank you for the info. Poor thing! Her tail was clamped too. The bettas at Petsmart always look bad. Most of the females had stress stripes, and 2 females that were in cups next to each other were flaring at each other the whole time. They had some AMAZING males at Petco though. They had a Delta male blue butterfly and a VT yellow butterfly. Too bad I’m not looking for a male! Master Betta is the only man for me! (Shhhh don’t tell my husband)
