In other news, I have not been able to resist having a look around for a future ruler of the 5g.
Premature, I know, since cycling is ongoing, and probably will be for a couple of weeks.
But I have seen these beauties, and fallen in love with all of them.
Unfortunately, I expect they will all be sold long before I am ready to buy.
However, as a newcomer to betta I am curious to know how much their colour is likely to change over time.
My current betta, Tagawa, was a pale irridescent aqua green and blood red, when I bought him. Over the next month, he has slowly deepened to a peacock blue-green and much brighter red.
Are the following youngsters likely to darken/alter/change as they grow up more. I know that old bettas go duller and browner, but the yellow one, for instance - is he likely to dull down to brown before he hits old age?
