I've heard that bettas do change colors but this is amazing.
This guy is from my 1st spawn that hatched 8 months ago.

Picture #1 was taken June 22. He was solid blue with only a small white edge forming on the end of his tail.
The next were taken july 13th, july 15th & the last ones (with the most white) on the 18th.

Dude one of mine changed from a pastel marble to a metallic green with red wash overnight. Like one day he was a grizzle, the next, he was a metallic green.

Hello,

Wriggley is now deceased but thought you might like to see another color change. He was a wonderful fish. I had his photo enlarged to 8x10 and hung it on my wall in my fish room.

Thanks for the post , Ken. Wriggley was so beautiful! Would never have guessed those pictures were of the same fish!
I guess my bettas were always in their final color phase when I purchased them so I didn't get to see the patterns & colors change! Just another reason to like them,

Your betta is too cute. A change from light pinkish white to dark pink. So cute and so adorable.

This has been my Betta's color changes so far: He started off blue, white and transparent with a little bit of red on the top of his head.

After about a month, his body started to become a dark blue almost black, and he had color beginning to emerge in the once-transparent fins.

Now he has almost no transparency left. He has white edges, with red streaks (the red is getting brighter and covering more of his fins everyday) and a beautiful blue-green shimmer.
