I currently have a Halfmoon Male Betta, the colour is Blue with Turquoise gradient, It live in 5 gallon tank with cannister filter, PH 7.5-8. I put some silkplants there.. his tankmates is 3 Baby Albino Corydoras and 3 Otocinclus..
at first the colour somehow really Blue, (well sometimes I see some clear colour)
but now his Anal Fin become all paler.. and his other fins started to look like that too..
I keep on eye of his behaviour
his appetite still good, love to eat ( I gave him once or twice a day).
I isolate him in a small aquarium for sick fish, I see he swims normaly.
Sometimes I see him dart the gravel/bottom of aquarium when He turn direction of swimming, ex: change from left to right. (is tat normal?)
everything is normal except the colour...
Sometimes the stress lines is appear when I fix something in the tank, but he doesn't afraid or run, he went closer to check my hands....
I heard that Goldfish will become white when it doesn't get sunlight for a longtime, is Betta too? is the Sunlight really affect betta colour?
well If not, any Idea why my betta colour become pale, and how to cure? :(
I love my Betta so much, he love to be pet tho...
thank you so much!
