Marble Koi Betta Over Time!

  • #1
HI y’all! I’ve got this koi betta named George (you probably know him by now as the betta that’s smarter than a dog) and I realized something about him the other day. George is changing colors. George is a koi. Kois are marbles. Marbles change color. So I thought since I just moved him into his own 2.5 gal and the sunlight was hitting it nicely, I would take some glamour shots of how he’s changed!

Here’s him before:

Here’s him today!

I’m going to keep adding updates as he continues to change, supposedly they never stop! Isn’t that wild?!

He is beautiful! He's just like my guy who is also changing I haven't taken any "after" photos since I got him but I'm sure he is getting redder just like George. They are so brilliant and smart and interactive. I feel like I want to play with him or pat him or something. Like a dog!

You might want to try the Fish School to test his smartness

Jamie aren’t they adorable? And thank you!! I think Georgie is like a fine wine, he just gets better as he ages He was just a lil baby when I got him so he’s got a whiiiile to change more

Hill Dweller Thank you! Aww, cute! Do you have any pics of him? I’d love to see and I knowwwww he’s like a tiny water dog, whenever I’m cleaning his tank he literally swims into my hand or attacks it he’s so funny

Abby thank you!! Can’t wait to see how he grows

Emmy LOL he totally does! And I kinda did, taught him how to go through a hoop and jump for food and all that jazz, he’s suuuper smart!

Oh my!! He’s positively stunning! Changed just like George, I wonder if Kois all get deeper in color and redder as they age?
I bet we will see a continuous change in the red and the black as they grow. So fun

Wow, the blue in her tail is stunning! She’s so pretty! I kinda wish George were peaceful like yours, he attacks literally everything he can get his weird little mouth on

Y'all you're Bettas are so cool looking! I wanted a koi but I got an elephant ear delta/halfmoon. He's really pretty and I love him, but now I want a Koi even more! They're so gorgeous!
K. Now I have to seriously consider getting another tank.

Yeah, I had the choice of either her or another koi at the store. I liked her most, but she tried to fight with all the other fish I put her next to. I had decided to take a chance with her because of her blue and iridescent streaks and spots that the other koi didn't have. I guess my gut was right. Now I'm trying to breed her with my double tail halfmoon boy. He's not as nice as the girls though. But I'm trying to get koi double tail halfmoon babies that have the same blue streaks. Omg that'd be so pretty!!

Here's my boy (sorry for the bad pic!):

And this is what I want as a doubletail:

Sorry, I meant this one:

I'm in a dorm too, and I'm only supposed to have a 10g, but I secretly have a total of 35g oopsies...

**Don't worry, I have a place for then to go if I get caught
