Coloring

Can anyone tell me if it is normal for a young ....6month.....male to turn from bright red to a tail that is almost transparent? I raised some half moons and they have been totally brilliant red....now they are turning clear...a mystery to me. The females don't seem to be doing the same. thanks.

i think that could involve the "jumping gene" am not sure it sounds strange, unless the betta is growing more fins and dosen't have color pigments yet

Agreed lol.. Its totally possible to have some marble gene in there. Its amazing how much a fish will change when they carry this "jumping gene"

Here's what marbles can do. I had no idea Sheldon was a marble, until I looked back at when I first got him and I was shocked lol. I had no idea how much he had changed.


Never thought of the red loss gene, wow I blanked out on that one LOL

When it started the tail fins were just edged in the clear color but within a few days they were a totally different color. beautifulbetta....your betta is gorgeous...hope mine end up looking like that. The fins are long and gorgeous .....just changing color so fast. I will try to some pics but my camera isn't the best.
