Yes they are. An orange-ish yellow fish could be understandable, due to reeds and whatnot...

Theyre bred exclusively for color. Some of the other breeds of wild bettas (there are many, the term "betta" is misleading) have more adventurous colors like speckles of reds and can be light bodied, but as per bettas that we know, their wild ancestors are exclusively that blackish-blue-red-green color mix, normally.

I was talking to another member who looked at this image and 2 seconds later said he looked like he just came out of a serious illness... Since I got him not long ago can anyone confirm this and advise treatment? I have oak tannin + 1 tsp of epsom salt already mixing in a gallon jug if thats what is needed.

If it makes a difference I also mentioned that he is quite docile and doesn't really like to flare, even when provoked with mirrors or sticks.

thank you, is the marbling in the coloured bettas part of their wild heritage?

Is Glorfindel considered a OHM? I took this photo last week and it really looks like one, but that would make 3 OHM's from Petco and aren't they supposed to be a little hard to find at places like that?

my fish has been in AQ salt for a week and its caudal fin has started to tear between the the spines near the base of the tail (3 new tears). the rocks arent cutting it and no plants. should i put it back into the normal water without AQ? the fin was better. 7 days in AQ salt .5 gal and 100WC.

Copperarabian, I think he may just be a HM, not sure...

Nel3, what was the reason he was in the AQ salt treatment anyways?

Simizoki, he looks fine to me! But ask around more...

the reason was cut edges on the caudal tail. dont care what my parents say. im going to get a heater for the betta. found the water temp at 22. the .5 gal want too bad before staying at 25C, damn AC. please dont hang me for this, i was going to buy a heater for my fish before winter starts and no heater during summer but thats out the window now. are there any good heaters fora 1gal tank and 2.5g that are reliable? walmart has the unadjustble tetras, lowest watt 100 2-15g. should i to stop the AQ salt now ?

I dont know about the AQ salts. But somepeople put in 25W heaters for a 2.5G. But people recommend the hydor heaters for small tanks.
