Oh man, Gucci is gorgeous. Did he stay that color pattern for his entire life or did marbling occur?

his upper body that appears more orange/faded turned a deep red. other than that he looked like this for his entire life. unfortunately he was definitely bred for looks vs color and he came in sick with lots of internal issues. he passed after about 6 months of me trying to keep him healthy.

@yannachkaThanks for the warning! I've always wanted to try a fancy betta like that, but now I'll have a better idea of what I'm getting into.

no problem! as long as you heavily research the breeder (he was an import and an impulse purchase so no research was done) and they have good reviews you can feel confident buying one. im seeing fish with these types of colors/fins becoming more commonly available which is both a good thing and a bad thing. he was from aquabid and i should have read the shop reviews before buying.

So here’s the new one. Kids convinced me on him for the his color, black and gold (for our team - LAFC). I believe he will be losing the black at some point and switching to blue. I’ve had him a few weeks now. He seems happy in his new 29g home. He was a little shy around his new friends at first but has definitely become very confident around them now.

The Mighty Mister Mojo and his unfortunate head tumors. He's a good kid. The tumors don't slow him down; he's still frisky.

Here's what he looked like when I first got him 2 years ago...

Wow, from white or platinum to blue and red?!  Didn’t know they could change like that!  Mojo is colored up like my Rilian, on who I just noticed a growth of some kind on the flesh part of his tail.  It looks like I have to do some research on tumors and growths on bettas.  I put description and pictures up in “Diseases”.

I forgot to add that it is encouraging to know that they can still enjoy life and carry on with some benign growths.
