Starting to hate marbles.

Peacock is marbling and I hate it since I know his fins might turn color too. >:( here are two pics when I first got him. Now his body is turning more black

I get what you mean. When I got Rain, he was a beautiful white with blue patches and a nice white face. Now's he's completely blue with black splotches on his face.

But your boy adorable! Do you have any recent pictures?

It's interesting that we got marbles expecting them to change, and are excited when they do, but their transformations are not always what we expected/hoped for. More often then not, they turn into something we don't really have the hots for. But hey, what they lack in appearance, they make up for in personality! (At least, that's what I keep telling myself, hahahaha)

I think he's handsome :D
I have a female I raised from a baby and when she was younger she was bright neon yellow. Now she's a duller yellow with black spreading from her fins. At first I was sad, but with time I've come to love her uniqueness. :)
Marbling is a bit annoying at times, but I always see it as a sort of cool 'mystery prize'. You never know what you're going to get and that's fascinating! (But I also love change, so that's probably why I find it so cool. )

I personally like the way he looks now...He looks like a piebald and I rarely see those :)

Marbles are a mixed bag. The best looking fish I ever bred lost all his color, went cello and never got it back. Ive had others lose color, then change to a new one even better. I like to track the changes. Some are not good others can be fantastic. The speed of change also varies, I have one that is different every week and because he has good fins I bred him a couple of weeks ago to a sibling. What I do like is the amount of variation that keeps it interesting. Instead of getting a whole spawn that all look similar I find marbles can throw just about anything so that's why I like them...never boring.
