The poop color can change depending on what they eat. Their poop can have a reddish tint if they have eaten blood worms recently. Read this thread: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=76615

petta poop what theyeat XD if you feed her red food, her poop will e red. the stripes are from seeing her reflection. She is showing submission stripes because she thinks her reflection is another betta.
