Regaining his color

Algernon became quite the pale little guy for a while. He did have to endure a 3 hour car ride home, freezing temperatures at my family's home, and the 3 hour drive back to my college. When I brought him home he was a gorgeous purple color. A few weeks later his purple had started fading. Yesterday I went out to my local Petco where I had purchased him at and upgraded him to a 3 gallon tank and added a new rock formation and a real plant. Overnight I noticed a HUGE difference in his color! I'm so excited to have him back to his beautiful self.

Photo from this morning!

Plus, he was being a total camera ham this morning. When I tried to get a photo of his side he would turn his face to the camera. Silly boy!
I'm still going to be getting him a small heater for his tank and I'd like to add more plants. He's going to be one happy camper!

Bettas have a tendency to turn light/faded color when they are stress. However, some bettas, particularly the marble type, tend to change color permanently. Keep him healthy and active and he should be colorful for you. :)
