That shimmer has been there since I got him but I thought it was part of his fin coloration. Plus I’ve noticed that his eyes kinda changed. Before there were somewhat normal, like there was somewhat cloudy but not a lot. Now they’ve changed. The first picture is a picture of when I first got him and the second one was taken today.

    Doesn't look like he has velvet. Velvet would also cause him to exhibit other symptoms. Is he exhibiting anything else?

    He has diamond eyes. It's common among dragonscale bettas and it's when scales grow over the betta's eyes.
