My betta decided to change colors?!?!

I have had my youngest betta for about a year now and he has decided to change colors! When I got him his body was a metallic green/black color and over a period of about 3 weeks his body color changed to yellow! The first picture is the first week when I first started noticing the color changes, the second picture is from the second week of his color change and the last two pictures I took today!

Wow! I've heard of marbles doing this, maybe he has a similar gene that made him change color. That is a cool color of yellow he kind looks like a goldfish now. Lol

Yea when he first started to change colors I figured he was going to turn into a marble but the yellow just kept coming and the green kept shrinking.

Keep an eye on his behaviour. Typically, bettas change to a darker or more vivid colour - paler colours can be a sign of sickness. It's quite possible it isn't, but do keep an eye out. :)

Wow! Gotta say, I like his current color, though he was certainly pretty to start with.

My boy is going the more usual marble route...

Romeo did the same thing. When I first got him he was pure white with his beard only being maroon but after a few weeks he turned into pink and maroon
