@Campbell. Thanks for the advice though. I know fishies don't get used to things over night. They're just like humans when it comes to moving homes Especially when you go from a shack to a mansion. bahah. Although he's been exploring the tank alot more. I'm sure he'll be ok soon.

@Frogipoi. Thanks! Finn has been changing too. His blue is slowly becoming more vibrant and he has a purple-ish/red-ish stripe(violet maybe? ) on his tail. His front fins are also slowly turning to either purple or blue. I'm pretty sure he's a VT, I've read that staying in cups for a long time can cause the tail to change a bit, but once they're put into proper homes they fix up.

He's so pretty! :P I love the dark purple on him.

Yep, don't worry about his fins, they're probably just like that- the boys and my pet store have fins like that as well, their fins curl sometimes. And don't worry about him not eating since you got him, either It's normal. He's just adjusting.

@BettaSlave. Thank you! I'm in love with the dark purple (Indigo i guess?) also and I'm glad it's showing more now that he's in his new home. :)
As for the curls and food...that sure calmed me down a bit! haha. Ty.

That's so cool! Aurora must be really happy at your place :) He's a beautiful fish. My sister had one that looked almost exactly like your Aurora except the body was like a whitish pink.

No problem He's a lucky boy to be in a five gal. XD All of my bettas (except Hattie, who is also in a 5 gal) are in 2.5 gallons. His color will probably change a bit (or a lot, depending on how happy he was at the pet store) in the next few days.

Oh, and I didn`t say this before, but I am 85% sure he is a VT.

Aurora was so depressed at the pet store. When he saw me he brightened up!

Lol! I was lucky to get the 5gal. Went to PetSmart and the price was SOO much more expensive than I saw online so they matched it. Ended up getting a 65$ tank for $29.99! I'm pretty sure he's a VT also. I was comparing him to a CT and they're was a major difference regarding the tail. I would of gotten the CT but i fell in love with Finn. :D
Your Betta's are really pretty you must dedicate alot of your time to them cause it truly shows!

AWEH! That's the same thing that happened with me a Finn. I was searching for a fish and two stood out. A red CT and Finn. I felt more of a connection with Finn though (plus he was cheaper XD but that didn't matter a whole bunch) cause he kept on swimming around the cup while in my hand and the other one would just stare. lol
