color changes?

just wondering if this is normal..
i got wally on Sunday and he looked like this:


and now, in his new digs, he looks like this. no more blue and much more red/pink wash:




why would he LOSE his colors when he is in his new tank? is it stress? will he get his blue back (i loved his blue, one of the reasons, next to his eyes, that i got him).

thank you again guys for your answers and help!!

WOW he's gorgeous!! When they're in those little cups, most of the time they're so stressed out that they change to either dull or weird colors. As soon as you put them in a tank and they get comfortable they'll change back to their regular color or much brighter. Marble colored bettas can change colors often. I have one and his colors changed drastic after a couple months.

thanks guys... i am just surprised that he lost color, since i usually see it there other way around when the come from those small cups. i'll have to watch him and see if he changes at all (marble gene) or if he just was "blue" (haha) while in that small cup. he is really pretty the way he is! i just really liked his blue markings a lot too. i still haven't gotten him to flare!!! he opens his tail a bit (and at that point he looks like an SD) but hasn't actually flared his gills or opened his tail all the way. so i'm still not sure if he is an SD or HM.

Mmmmk....Go lock your doors and windows, I'm comin' to steal him
xD Hes such a gorgeous boy <3 I have this thing for white and yellow bettas....and unusual dragons....and VT butterflies... Color change is totally normal...in fact, i wouldn't say he lost color at all, I'd say hes brightened up :) Haha
As far as tail type, just from the pictures, I'd say hes probably a delta or SD ;)
