Introduction and picture of Sam

Hi. I am new to this forum, new to bettas, and even new to fish in general. I fell in love with a crowntail betta at Petco (I know now--not the best idea, but there are no LFS where I live), and I have been researching how to keep him healthy and happy. He is currently by himself in a 12-gallon Fluval Edge aquarium. It's in the middle of its cycle, which is worrying me (I simply didn't know about cycling when I got him), but I'm doing frequent partial water changes, applying Prime when the nitrites are too high, etc.

Without further ado, here he is! Can anyone tell me what color/pattern he is considered to be? I know that his body looks purple, but his scales are actually separately the same turquoise and red as are on his fins--they just look purple from more of a distance!

Looks like a pretty Tri-color to me! Tri-colors often don't have "patterns" such as a mustard gas or a butterfly. I believe we have a great thread for Betta Colors and Patterns here somewhere, I think it's a stickie too.

Thank you! I think he's beautiful, too. He seems very happy in his tank and makes some really extensive bubble nests!

Looks like a multi color

I'd say white/pink, red, and turquoise. He's really a lovely betta :D

And welcome to the forums! <3
