no its not.

He will only stay white if thats his true color. What you feed him has nothing to do with his color

Uh no. He WILL get red wash on him eventually but that is not true at all.

My whites have been on pellets for months now... as you can see they are a nice pearly white.

A malnourish/unhealthy betta will not have it's true colors. Once you start feeding on a regular basis and provide him with clean water, your betta will show it's true self.
So yeah, if you dont feed him pellets (at all) and keep him in the conditions he was he will remain white... and die LOL!

I would feed pellets because if you don't its true colors won't come out its better that way like when I bought my Rex he was all red but now there is like some neon on his fin so I would feed it pellets to bring out its true colors.
