Betta's Fins

Zetta

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 5 gallon 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.

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.
