changing color???

My betta (you can see him right here in this profile picture) has always had a startling white face. For some reason, his face has started to get darker the last few days, like it's turning the color of the rest of him. Has anyone had or heard of that happening? He acts the same, eats well, there are no changes at all.

He's a marble. Here's my marble Peacock. His face is almost pure black now

Another question, does it have anything to do with the amount of time I leave the tank light on?

No it's in his genes. You have to remember this, if you buy a betta with a peach colored head, it will probably marble on you

Had no idea, they had other bettas I liked better but poor Joe was so ugly with his white head (hence his name, Crazy Joe) I thought no one would take him! haha It's ok though, as weird as he looks with his evil striped head he's still a pretty cool fish.

He is looking completely gross now, omg.... he looks like he's wearing black lipstick and eye liner and the rest of his head and body morph between black purple and blue... it's too freaked out for me. lol
