Question Is it true?

Is it true that my Betta will lose it's color if he is stressed to much. Someone told me not to stress it too much or it will lose it's color and turn white?

Just curious if this is true.

Yes, they will turn pale when they are stressed. I don't think they will turn completely white unless they're white to begin with.

Yep, I've seen it happen... my poor Mo has to be put in his little cup and transported a few times a year. He's usually a rich indigo color with a black head... but when I take him out of his happy home and put him in a cup, his head becomes grey and he loses his luster.

Fortunately his color comes right back once he's put back into his tank. ;)

I've found that both of my bettas had their color intensify and become more brilliant after owning them for a few weeks and keeping them in ideal conditions.

Yupp its true, stress will cause them to lose color. But as long as you take good care of them and keep the water clean it's not something you'll really need to worry about.

It's true. The color will fade and they'll look very pale. I was going to post pictures up of one of the fish I got at Walmart to show you, but I think everyones tired of seeing the
