eye color?

My mom just came home from walmart with a surprise for me.. the most precious tiny (about an inch at most nose to tip of tail) female betta ever! I already have a male and female betta so i was prepared thank goodness!..anyway

she is very pale almost clear with light red tips on her fins and her eyes appear to be black? they aren't swollen just dark. is this a problem? she seems to be able to see okay. she comes up to the side of her tank when i am near it ...

i just want to make sure i do what i need to if something is wrong with her eyes being black. i'm sure this is a dumb question i've just never had a betta with that eye color before and i haven't heard anything about it..
THANKS!:)

without a picture it's hard to tell.... but I've seen plenty betta fish with black eyes. I noticed it more on light colored fish. It's just the color I think... But a picture would help to make sure. God knows with WalMart

What a sweet mom! Black eyes are normal on some colors, I believe.

I have a marble that turned into a pie-ball, he had dark eyes that have gotten darker as he changed. Check out my album under Pepe le Pew. He was almost totally clear with just a few dark grey spots when I got him in March and now he is mostly black.

Sounds adorable and normal =) Congrats on the new addition. May I inquire, that you aren't putting her in with either one, correct?
