Oh that makes a lot of sense. Moving a lot with trying to breed would be the worst situation ever.

I told myself I wouldn't buy more than two bettas for my husband's sanity, but then when my store got a new shipment in, I caved. I pulled out a gorgeous white male with some black on his fins. NO REGRETS BUYING HIM. He has completely changed from mostly white, to mostly black/blue. I've had him for about 2 weeks now, and it seems he is keeping his face white... We will see. He's such a happy boy :)

Aren't marbles wonderful?? I actually have a delta boy (looks like a VeilTail when not flaring) that was mostly white with a few blue streaks and now everything but his head is a navy blue with the exceptions of the tips if his ventral fins.

I was totally blown away at how quickly he changed. He only had a few black spots on his tail - his body was completely white when I bought him. In the course of 13 days, he has gone from that to almost completely black/blue. He's the most beautiful fish I've ever seen! lol
I believe he's a super delta, he looks pretty close to a half moon when he's flared. I bought him from work as a "dragon scale" betta.

If all bettas turned out like this, I would probably buy them all and have a house full of bettas xD
(I apologize that the photos are a bit blurry, it's the best I could manage with my iPhone and with how much Gray gets excited when I'm around lol)

He definitely looks like a super delta, my guy is just a delta though. I'll post pictures of him when I can! He nipped his own fins a while back, he's on the road to recovery!

Silly fish. I would love to see him :)

In the mean time, why haven't you bought the betta yet? Think of the potential! :P

He is silly! He really does look like a veil though haha.
I'll get photos of his before and after this weekend.

I'm a little hesitant right now with buying bettas...
Last weekend I got one of my dream fish, an orange dalmatian plakat.
I had him less than two days. The day after owning him he showed signs of columnaris that just attacked too quickly...I medicated and he still passed..very sad, and I'm very scared to get another in fear of it happening again..

Here are photos of when he was alive.

I remember seeing that thread when you first posted it. He was a really pretty fish, I'm terribly sorry to hear that he passed away :( I know I would be devastated if Gray passed away, especially since I'm not sure if he's done changing color and I REALLY want to see how he's going to turn out.

So I understand why you would be hesitant. This betta looks pretty healthy in the photos you posted... Then again, I guess that's not saying much.. I personally would take the risk. I know I would end up beating myself up since I now always wonder if the betta would ever change or just stay the same. Had I not bought Gray on impulse, I would have never been able to see his dramatic change.

Again, I'm sorry for your loss. To me, my bettas are kinda like kids to me. They really brighten my day.
