Thank you!

Thank you, everyone, for your input. I will try and get a pic of him flaring. He has been a docile fish. When I first got him, he was very sickly and a plain gray color. He has improved over the last couple months and this is him now. I finally got around to asking about his color. Thanks so much!!

indjo Copper may show different colors depending on light angles. Grey, copper, greenish, purple,-ish, and some say gold-ish due to the shimmer. It doesn't actually change colors like marbles, and is one of my favorite colors.

Your boy doesn't really look like a rose, but I can't be sure without side view flaring picture. Unfortunately he seems to have a few curls/folds on caudal - probably due to previous health issues.

BTW, welcome to the forum.

RussellTheShihTzu Welcome to the Forum!

What a beautiful boy you found.

The "shimmery," in most cases, is iridescence. Some Betta got it and some Betta don't.

Rainbo His color is called copper. Betta Colors & Patterns -

I'm not sure about the tail type, it'd help if you could get him to flair.

What color is this?

Hi all! I am cleaning fish tanks today and was curious what color this Betta is. He was a drab, monotone gray when I got him, and now he shimmers and changes color, depending on the lighting. Reminds me of oil on water. Also, does he look like a rose petal? He wasn’t labeled, but was in another cup in the back if the store (I asked for the sick ones). Thanks!
