    Here's a picture. He seems to be changing to a brighter blue:)
    This picture is from yesterday after he came home.

    Is that normal? Should I do daily water changes?

    I'd definitely do extra water changes to help him heal. You can also use some garlic guard, vitachem, and/or Kordon fish protector to aid in healing, but the main thing is to keep pristine water for him. He's beautiful by the way!

    Thanks! All the others were pink crown tails, so he just called out to me. Would minced garlic work
    ? I soak sushi's (my other betta) food in that because he has fin rot. If not I will pick up kordons fish protector tomorrow.

    Yeah the same garlic treatment as for fin rot will work just fine. Garlic guard is just bottled garlic juice anyway.

    Thanks, I will start doing daily water changes and soaking food in garlic.
