The easiest way is to check the gill plates.If the gill plates have some white coloured or thick coloured scale,that betta is a marble.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!

So if the gill plates are opaque?(white?) what does thick colored mean?

Swarovski is a black/white marble - he's got black streaks on white and some irredescent scales on his side. Definitely a marble! Though he has yet to change.

Marbles just change. Can't tell if they will or not. A one hundred percent blue betta can marble out of nowhere.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Thick means much more intense coloration or looks lighter or darker.

Marble-ing is caused by a certain gene. It can't be seen physically - you cannot predict if a fish is marble or not. You know when they begin to change.

Marble has nothing to do with color patterns. A solid could have marble genes as much as a multi colored betta.

Well I imagine it is more obvious to tell if the betta has splotches of color. That's weird though because I read an article on the IBC website about orange Dalmatians and it said the seldom (if ever) change.
