I don't think it's anything serious, but my male halfmoon betta Dracula's fins are turning red, is it blood? Or is it coloring? His fins were originally a solid white but now are turning red. I want his fins to be white again? Anything I can do about it?
Here are his fins now (not sure why the photo is sideways). His tail is a dark red and his other fins have a pinkish tint. Once someone replies I'll post a before picture of when I first got him. I don't know how to post two photos in one post, whenever I try it deletes the first one. If I post it in a new post Itd remove it from the "unanswered" category and people would be less likely to notice it.

Your picture did not post. As I remember, you've asked about this before, and the answer remains the same.

Fish gain color in warm water. There is nothing to do about it.
There is a small unlikely shot he has septicemia. If he is clamping, or acting odd, you might look into it.

He's just gaining color - it's something to be happy about, it means he's healthy. There is nothing you can do to change his coloration.

I've had two fish suddenly acquire red fins on me. One had absolutely no red when he was brought home, so red fins on a turquoise fish freaked me out. He's probably just showing you his natural colors! Why do you wish him to be all white anyway?

My boy Jasper had blue ventreal fins when I got him and now they've changed to blue around the rim, red in the middle and white on the tips. He also has some red in his anal fin.
