is this normal colouring
i have had my rescue betta for 4 weeks now and noticed his blue fins are getting lots of red in them, is this his normal colouring or could it be something serious
looks normal to me. Bettas come in all different colors and can change colors over time.

thank you for the reply this is my first betta and he was a rescue,i got worried when i noticed alot of his fins had changed red i thought he had fin rot or something but you have put my mind at ease now, i didnt know they can change colour lol
He looks like my little stewie! He's beautiful.
Someday, when I have all the fish tanks I want, I hope to be featured on an episode of animal hoarders.

Bettas seem to love changing colors... One of mine, a male veiltail named Opal, turns from green to blue to purple and varies the amount of red in his fins entirely at random and at the drop of a pin. I also have a female, named Echo, who was dark brown when I bought her, with blue and green scales down her sides, and she has turned almost completely white. She's now a light reddish-pink.
+ 1 to everyone else.
My bettas change colour at times as well. They are quite amazing to watch!!
