Silvia changed colour!

Post by Nataliey on Thu Sep 23, 2010 4:34 pm

Im not sure if this is the right place but iv noticed over the past few weeks Silvia my silver female betta is changing colour! First off i noticed some of here scales where turning black (like when i first saw her in the lfs) and now her tail and fins have a dark purpley trim.

the paler colours sometimes do go darker, one I had from Netty (I think) has more colour in her than when I first got her

Depending on the genetic line this female came from, if there were any red dragons used that will start to show. Hence why you are seeing the purple coming through Very Happy
