very nice betta! looks like he's got a nice and full belly already!

I also have a color changing betta. Hes a halfmoon bought from IPU 1.5 years ago
thanks , yours are nice as well & Yes he is eating great lol The ones that change color are so cool . I was looking on the net yesterday about them and seen lots of cool ones

he was just a lil stressed with the move :D
I was thinkin thats what it was,I did some research & seems some do it alot thru their life for whatever reason

im not sure if you caught it but the two pics I shared are of the same fish :) I was showing just how much they can change lol
it took me a minute but I did catch it, I presume the pic with the white on him is the newer one...it is an amazing morph for sure ... you should see some of the ones I seen yesterday, its really unbelievable how they change so much. The bottom pic you showed looks a lot like the one in my 33 gal, which when he was in the right light last nite , I could swear the outer edge of his fins were slightly red, which was a first I have ever noticed on him, could be in for a surprise soon there

lol thats weird.. I've been noticing red in this guys fins too recently when hes in certain areas of the light... very strange! they must be the same type of betta or something.

actually the pic with white is when I first got him and the other pic where hes all blue with a black head i just took a few days ago :)

they are way too addicting. they don't need much space so its so easy to just squeeze one in any where lol then before you know it you have way too many. We have 8 males here and probably bring home a couple more like you when I stop by IPU tomarrow.

wow very cool,
i really like betas but the wife won't let me put vases around the house with fish in them.
we tried it for a while till one of the vases got broken by the i don't know ghost.
those of you with kids know what i'm talking about.
