Is it possible for my female betta to be losing color in her fins? I noticed today that she had a huge halo of white/clear where it used to be all red. I even double checked old photographs of her to make sure I wasn't crazy. Can her fin colors change over time, or is there something wrong with my fish?
For pictures, these are the best I have.
