    I am new to this forum and new to owning bettas.

    My new betta's fins are mostly clear and slightly iridescent. After doing research, it seems like clear fins on a betta may be due to illness? I just want to know if this is true, and if so, what I can do to help my new little guy.

    He is in a filtered 5g tank that went through a fishless cycle prior to me getting a betta. It is heated at a steady 78 degrees. He has an apple/mystery snail friend as a roommate. I do 25% water change weekly. Usually the sand is cleaner than in the picture below, but my snail went on a poop rampage the day the picture was taken lol

    Hello, I am most definitely not an expert but I have seen many bettas like this. Personally I think it is just their colour, as long as it has changed and he is eating normally he should be ok. But I'm not sure.:):greyalien:

    hello :]
    what are your water parameters and what do you feed him?

    Looks like just his fin colour to me. I wouldn't worry.

    Btw, he's freakin' gorgeous, and I love your tank!

    Yep, that's just his natural coloring. I wouldn't be too worried unless he's acting weird. He's also got some severe fin curling on top but that shouldn't affect his health.
