Changing colors normal ?

Just curious to find out if changing colors on betas are normal? I noticed today, that my betas tail is turning pink,and he has a pink spot on his side.
Near the tail, so im curious to find out, if there is something wrong with him that Im unaware about, or if this stage is normal? I just saw the pink in him just moments ago, i dont think the pink was there yesterday He still seems to be very happy, with a small bubble nest still, I clean the tank as often as i can, and hes still a nosey lil thing.He basically still does is daily stuff he normally does.

Yep, it's normal. Bettas change color depending on mood, temperature, if there's other bettas around, ect.

oh ok i hope its a good thing though and not a bad thing lol.
It worried me when i saw the pink spot on his side, but half his tail has gone pink.
I wonder, what other colors, he will change too. He was dark blue, with red, and some white at the bottom of his fins, and black at the top of his head.
His tail was red so the pink kinda worried me

I had a similar concern. When I first bought my female, Aoi, on Wednesday, she was pastel with blue spots on her fins. Then, yesterday I noticed parts of her body began to turn red.

I wonder if that has something to do with the males vying for her attention in their own tanks. Lol.

yea betta's change colors for several reasons and unless its a disease or its starts losing color its not a bad thing at all. plus if u read the food jar carefully most will say that the food is designed to change the betta's color if u want true dramatic color change start feeding live food.

I kinda think it might be there wanting attention, he use to make huge bubble nest, and i guess he found out i wasnt gonna give him a female to kill LoL
But I think pink is kinda a boring color for male fish LoL
