My betta changes color from an almost clear to an olive color to an olive black iridescent blue... and she does so with every new flicker of emotion.

Great pics RayneForhest! It's amazing how dramatic the change is! My young black females will go from cellophane to coal black within seconds, it makes me wonder lol.

All animals will change behavior (and therefore color depending on the species) throughout the year... from what I've read it has to do with barometric/atmospheric pressure (lower during the winter=winter blues and higher during the summer=more active). During the summer, when they are feeling better, they are likely to show their true colors.

My new female went from a tanish body with teal fins when I picked her out to brownish purple the next day to a really dark purple black once introduced to the tank. I dont know about seasons but the do chance depending on mood, health and spawning.
