Color Change? pics

Here is my Big Ear Double Tail Half Moon, I don't have a name for him yet but I think he is still young. This is a picture of him in natural lighting with no flash, do you think he will change color with age?






I just noticed that my sand and gravel mix looks like a watermelon haha lol.

He might get some red wash. Or more color with better water parameters. Not sure about age.

Yea I see a little red in the cheeks and the base of his caudal, it will be interesting to see in a week or two if he colors up in his heated tank.

I agree. He'll most likely get red throughout his fins and cheeks. He is very,very cute btw! Where did you get him?

That would be so cute if he got some red, either way I think this little guy is super cute. I got him at Petco. I have seen him there for over 3 weeks now so when I went recently I thought to myself " He must be mine ".. lol. Or wait? Do we all think like that about every Betta? haha Anyways yea he is a Petco find. And was only $3.99!! What a great deal for a Double Tail Half Moon Big Ear :)

Whaaaatt? Only 3.99$ at Petco?? My Petco doesn't even carry Double Tail Half Moon Big Ear's, nor have I ever seen one! My Petco has just recently been getting Double tails! ._.

Same with my Eclipse! I saw him there for the longest of time and just decided to get him X)!

Great find!!!!

Also what camera do you use? You take great pictures!

Thanks everybody!! I love him! I just need a name now? What to think...

@Bettanewbie60 it completely looks like a big slice of watermelon. I never noticed until these pictures lol.

@pinkcupid765 Yes I was shocked when I got to register, I was expecting more like 10-14 bucks. The Petco I go to is fabulous, they manage their community tanks and Betta cups wonderfully. I am there frequently and I have never seen a dirty cup yet. The selection of Betta's is very impressive, they recently got in a ton of Half Moon PK and I saw 3 Big Ear out of the 10 they had. I just love my Petco and I make sure to tell them that all the time.

@MasterMegan, Thank you your very sweet. And yes what a great price, I am thinking the guy didn't know what he was doing lol.
