Can Bettas Change Colors??

I noticed the other day that my very blue betta had bright red pectoral fins. I dont think he had them when I brought him home from petsmart and now it appears that the dark scales around his head are getting a reddish tinge along with his tail. I saw someone else mention a betta that turned colors. Is that really possible?

I think so

when my friend brought mine home as a gift I swear it was all dark-purple.

Then as it settle in I saw more and more skyblue and red!

It's really pretty and I think their colors can change as their environments change(he had a rough ride when he came to me, so my friend said lol)

dont worry!:D

Bettas do this a lot.
It could be immaturity, environmental fluctuations, or disease.
