Exclamation moved my betta yesterday now he's spotty!!

I have a male Betta in a 5 gallon tank. I moved him into my new house by keeping him in the tank and draining most of the water. When we got to the house I filled it with water, treated it, had to wait 15 minutes before turning the heater on, but it's been on all night. I woke up this morning to find his top fin has dark small spots, and his body is just NOT as purple as it was. I know he's probably stressed, I'm mainly concerned about the spots. Thanks for your help!

The spots might be his natural coloring. They could be more apparent since he's pale at the moment.

Give him some time to settle in and keep an eye on him.

What colour are the spots? Are they white?

Photos would be helpful? Some bettas have some natural spots in their color. I had one that spotted up when stressed.

How much did the temperature swing when you moved them and how fast did it heat back up?

The temp changed a bit but got reset within the hour, he continued to be pale for a couple of days but now he is bright purple again! The spots are still there and they are a bluish color, he has no symptoms of sickness so maybe the stress brought the spots out? Next time I will definitely post pictures, I don't know why I didn't think of that before. But he is doing great, normal goofy Betta.

That might just be his colouring. If they were white, then you should be worrying! lol

Pics, please!

Thanks everyone :) and callistra he is purple to me. Don't know if they technically call it blue though? But I'd say definitely purple
