Question Changing colors???

Okay, I know Bettas tend to change their colors almost immediately once they're home from the store and in a new tank.... but I've had Tian-Tian for nearly 5 months now.

See the picture on the left of the green Betta? Take note, that's the color green... with some red.

And now, I present a blue and red Tian-Tian.
***** Yes, this is the same fish. *****


This color change happened gradually over the course of a few weeks. Once in a while he appears purple and red, with a hint of green on the very tips of his fins.

Thoughts on this?

Here's the photo proof: (eek! Sorry the file is so big!)

So what do you think?

Thanks! I still want to know why or how it happens, though.

I know!! I haven't changed his diet at all, so I don't know what's been going on. Anyone have ideas?

It's normal for them to change color, but I'm not sure about such a drastic change. He's beautiful either way!

Haha, maybe!

Thanks everyone for your comments so far! I don't think I'm gonna worry about his color change. He seems otherwise healthy and he's eating very well (he's now getting mosquitoes as they get into the house since it's summer here and the occasional flea from off the dog, lol).

I..... I want another Betta. So bad. So good. But I need moneys, first... and a mode of transportation. The Petco that I want to purchase my next Betta from is a little far from my house. By bus it takes two hours. Why don't I have a car and another twelve bucks for a tank?? Bah, bah I say.
