Fish of a different color

Hey Everyone! Just an update on how much my little man "Siku" is CHANGING! He was feeling photogenic this morning so I snapped some shots. The first three are his "baby pictures" from the day I brought him home. He was @ a shady pet store in the dirtiest water in a tiny cup with about 6 days worth of feces. Most of the other bettas around him were dead. 3 weeks later and some TLC, his color has changed, his fin is healing and he is GROWING! Does anyone know if color change has more to do with genetics or environment? Just curious! :) He has been such a great teacher so far!

I tried to downsize these, sorry if they are too big!

WOW!!! He really has changed, how exciting! He is so stunning. I would say color change has to do with both genetics and environment. :D

Haha, awww, thanks! :) It just makes me so happy when people do something nice for someone or something else... and this lil guy could have died, and probably would have died... but bam! You came along and took him home and wow, look at him now! Gorgeous! :) I wish everyone loved their bettas as much as most of the people on this forum! You clearly adore your lil guy, that makes me happy! I'm extremely optimistic, I'm kind of bubbly I guess? I have to be, my brother's a grump. LOL! So I try to spread the smiles. :D
