Voldemort's changing colors?

Hello, When I got this fish he was completely orange maybe the ends of his fins were a see through orange-ey. I noticed the tips of his fins have been turning like a shiny or iridescent white color. Everything I read online says maybe he's stressed out. But nothing has changed and he has hiding spots, eats normally and acts energetic as always. Could he maybe just be changing colors? Thankyou :3
Here's two pictures:

Lovely boy you have! :) Welcome to the forum.

If his behaviour's normal, then he's most likely just changing colors, yes. :) I wouldn't worry. When bettas become comfortable in their surroundings they usually gain new coloring. I got a new boy recently and he's gained some white in his ventrals as well.

No problem. :P Not sure if you are, but if you're new to bettas it's understandable. lol It's understandable anyway. XD I worry about these things occasionally too, and I've kept bettas for quite a few years.

I've had the same thing too! The tips of my aquamarine VT's ventral fins turned the same colour as your betta! He's in perfect health, so I wouldn't worry about Voldemort (great name by the way)
