do bettas like this tend to marble?

Or do they have the same chance of marbling as any betta?

Here are some examples. They are random pictures I found on Google. I'm not sure what you call this coloring...but yeah...

it all depends if they have the marbling genes. although i can say that ive seen bettas (particularly here) "color" up or brighten up due to good living conditions that they live in. sorry if that was not much

Cool. That was the answer I wanted, because I am really into these now and if I got one I wouldn't want it transforming on me ("coloring up" is fine, of course).

What would you call that kind of coloration though?

He may brighten but not change. a lot of times the typical marble actually has a darker body then the fins. Or ends up like that at least. Mine started White and transucent in the fins. Now a dark blue body(that was the very first change) and tranlucent but colorful fins and a pink face with red lips lol

I heard that marbles are often butterflies at some point. Is that true?

I think those would be classified as multicolora but there could be a "line name" for them.

The butterfly and marble gene are related. A breeder I know did a marble spawn and got butterfly's.

But those guys in the pictures aren't butterflies, right? And what if they have a few colored scales on their bodies? Does that necessarily mean they are marbles?

No, none of them are butterflys. And the off-color scales are not marble either.
