What a pretty boy. His reds still look great, is it the reflective/metallic bits that are concerning you? In the photo using the nicer camera, he only seems to have tale damage, but still very bright? He also is not flaring out his tail to show off the irids in it -- does he still have them?

side-by-side, he just looks like he is older now :) more of those pretty metallic scales on his sides. Longer fins, damage and regrowth.

With my copper boy, everything affects his looks: water color, glass color, light color, and even colors outside of the tank. The bettas in breeder photos go into display tank specifically to get the best possible lighting and photo. Clear water, low-iron glass, cooler/diffused lighting and a bright, simple setup around the photo tank sound ideal to me. Lower water level, more light reaching the fish. Instigating the famous flare. Not a setup to live-in, really, but just for photos.

I love his colors :)

holy purple XD let me know how the CO2 goes.

One month alone can make a huge difference for such a young fish :) Any growth just means you're taking good care of him. He looks like a fish that needs spoiling ;)

Here's a two week of growth from what I was told is a female mustard gas, same age as your little guy:

:lol: Still cracks me up when I see him. I used to think he was one off the ugliest females I'd ever had. Well...
