turquoise CT betta fins turning white

iv had my turquoise CT since may 2012. i got him for being a turquoise betta but apparently he disagrees with me lol. i dont know how many weeks he has had the majority of white on his fins as i see him so often i dont notice it. its cool to see the white over taking the fins though i dont see the body colour going white.

this pic is from march 17th 2012


may 18th


this is today's picture

Is he a tail biter? His fins look really ragged.

it can either be biting or fin adjustment to the hard water. the fins start curling within 2 weeks and i think he had a bit of tail rot. his fins have been doing well these past months as far as regrowth goes. i do put IAL in the water but the water is still hard. cant do much sbout that, no hardware nor will to get an expensive water softener. i like CTs but im more partial to those that can deal with harder water better. my green DT has fared the worst when it comes to tail damage. the DTs fins are far from 100% ie my avy but theyv'e done well given his past history.

Okay that could be a big part of his color change. I agree he is beautiful!

sry ppl but he's staying with me. the white fins did surprise me but his colours are living up to match his name pretty well if it continues on like this. i do agree the white looks a bit off as far as lack of colour goes but the colour contrast is very nice. maybe he's actually an aquatic Chameleon to match the substrate colour o.o.

ive never had sucess maintaining fin form with any of my betta in the first few months i aquire them.

im not too sure of what to make of this. i just noticed a brown red string attached to one of his dorsal ray extensions. there's one on his anal ray extension. he looks healthy and just as energetic. i dont think ive ever come across a parasite in my personal exteriance but the brown strings to the rays are a bit troubling. doesnt look like fin rot as it not the actual ray extension thats brown. the extensions are either blue or white and intact for the moment.
