He's actually colored up a little more from what I first got him. Photo not the best but hopefully it shows what I'm talking about.

From what I understand some or all? koi bettas' colors will spread. Like some will end up going mostly red or mine.. some of the orange and white spots have gone blue. There is a betta photo thread in the photography section where someone has an example of that happening to one of theirs. It's pretty cool
