Imbellis changing colour?

I have a milky white imbellis (I've been told most likely a hybred) that has just recently started to produce blue scales. & I don't mean irridescent blue, I mean dark blue, almost marble scales. It's amazing. At first I got a little freaked out, I thought he had some sort of fungus, but then I realised it was actually colour. Everyday I check him he has a little more blue on him.

Here's a dodgy before pic:

Like I mentioned before, that's not what I'd call a betta imbellis. I doubt he has any imbellis in him at all, as he doesn't have the colouration of what used to be called 'imbellis', being the early splendes/imbellis hybrids that produced coppers. I honestly think he's a white PK, one who's developing a grizzle pattern (or possibly is a marble). Most white & gold bettas get blemishes eventually IME - it is a rare one that stays clean of dark markings.

I have had young Bettas put their head into the holes in flower pot, put in the tank for the BNs,

I had to help them out, that left a makes like that.

I now shove rocks in any thing that a Betta can put its head in :giggle:
