Laki: It took him about a month and a half to get to this point. I expect that in another months time his anal fin will be entirely blue. The only part I expect to not color in are his lips, which have remained the same this entire time!

GunsABlazin: You know, Kamehameha has some yellow/orange on his head and one tiny spot of yellow on his body, I fully expect his color to change even more, possibly getting more yellow/lighter in some places.
And did I mention his beard is clear? Yeah, try to explain that one as well.
Your boy is just stunning!

Kyt-Yea, Quartz's beard is also clear, but the outside edge is black.

This was taken before he colored up, but you can see the start of the red in his anal, dorsal and tail fins. Also the little black edge to his beard.

Wow. That is super cute! But I can see that he had clear fins so it makes sense that he would have a clear beard. I am just amazed at how the ones that look white/clear just color up! I wish I could get a picture of my boy flaring. :/

I've got a cellophane betta that is starting to get a tab bit of black behind his gill area and is getting some dark blue around the edges of his fins. I love marbles! They pop up out of nowhere! Haha xD

Kyt- you will get one! It took him almost 3 months to flair like that! I set his cup in a very small tank next to my CT male...so they HAD to flair. I havent gotten a flair like this since. :/ they can be such pains.

Alas, I don't think I ever will GunsABlazin. :( When I bought him I knew he wouldn't flare for me. I know that he does flare, I can see it from across the room, but the moment he sees me get close he just looks at me. Very personable little betta. He loves people more than anything.
