I have two new betta fish.. the last one i had i never really focused on but the new ones i have i take better care of then i thought i ever would.. they both are somewhat worrying me though.. the first one i got about 2 weeks ago(spaz) was almost dead.. his color has come back mostly but he starts to turn white sometimes.. and hes red.. i cant figure out why... well.. the other fish is neon blue (neon) and i got him a week ago.. he was completely blue for a few days but now he is partially brown and i dont like the looks of it... i know there is something wrong and i cant figure out what.. there in two separate tanks and i keeps the water clean and i keep them fed.. can anyone tell me if something is wrong with them? also i need to transport them 6 hours up to maine this summer and i really hope it wont be bad for them...
are they separate in 2gal+ tanks with heaters and places to hide?
color loss could be from stress.

my red one's chin turns white when he's stressed or if he wakes up after sleeping

okay that would make sence... but now i need to get heaters definetly.. :/ ive only rele been chaning the water to keep the water at a higher temperature.. aka over room temperature.. :/ there are still quite a few things i need to buy them..i got them for my birthday and it was a shock so i wasnt prepared... thank you for your advice..
make sure you get a heater with a thermostat. it doesnt matter if you get a higher wattage than what you need if it has a thermostat. just make sure it fits.

also there are 5 gal tank kits on amazon that are pretty cheap [and dont take up much surface area], you might want to upgrade to those for your fish. it's fun to decorate when you have a larger tank.
