Baby betta dont generally get their true colors for a couple of months. They will stay a fleshy color with permanent stress stripes for a while. No worries your little guys is doing fine as long as he's eating, swimming and pooping lol

The fry will usually all look kinda the same. Some may be dark and some lighter. At 1 month or so they may start to color up.

Full color is when they are fully grown.


How old is your "Baby"? Picture???

Guppies and bettas look different - body and fins.
By that age they should at least .... pale light brownish (?) don't know the color name (unless it's a light color- fleshy) .... with stress stripes. If they aren't stressed they should show colors.

Pictures would help ...

My little fish still doesn't have any color, though she (or he) is twice as big as my friend's baby who has a marbled coloring. As long as your baby looks healthy and happy, I'd just keep up with the feeding and water changes...:lol:
