Penfold's Fins Changing Colors

Hi Everyone! Ok, so Penfold is still a "juvie" - he's only 1" long. And now his beautiful peach colored fins are starting to get more silver in them. I understand this is normal, but I'm wondering how much change I can expect as he gets older? Is it possible that he'll loose all of the peach in his fins?

PS - I just got him on Sunday (Feb 13) and he's already got so much new growth on his fins!

PPS - He's not as active as Dobby was, should I be worried? Dobby was always swimming around exploring the jar. Penfold is mostly just mellow. I guess this worries me cuz Dobby was "mellow" right before he died...

It really depends on the genetic makeup of the Betta in how much they change color...

If he is overall acting fine and eating as well as not showing any behavior changes...I wouldn't worry too much.....he may be adapting and every Betta is unique with a special personality of their own....they love to keep us on our toes and thinking outside the box in some cases......part of the reason they are such a neat species of fish to keep......in my opinion....just watch him and provide quality water and nutrition.... as I am sure you are already doing....and enjoy......

Is that him in your avatar.....if not, sure would love to see a pic....he sounds pretty.....

Hi fishlady, thank you for your reply!

Yes, that is Penfold in my avatar. I chose that one because you can see his beautiful fins. I've posted more photos in the Pic thread: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=62785
When he swims into direct light, he shimmers and glows all blue-green.
