Colors in bettas?

Can a Betta lose or gain color? I have a Betta who was white. But has a a blueish color on his fins. And some coloring on his body.

Bettas can lose or gain color depending on their environment. Cold bettas are duller in color than warm bettas. Like wise for ones in filthy vs. clean conditions.

There are also Marble bettas who can change color drastically (Like from white with blue patches to completely red).. but that is genetic and not indicative of the way they are kept.

Yes, they can change color. I had one that was white when I got her then she turned pink.

Had one who was blue, and had tints of purple eventually when I took him home. I enjoy the color change, like a mystery surprise.
