Marble is a gene. Bettas with the marble gene with have "splotchy colors" and will change color.

For instance I have an HM male whose body is mainly dark blue on the lower half and white on the top have that also has a butterfly pattern (blue fins ending in white). Well recently his body has begun to turn completely blue.

Here's a great article on the marble gene: http://www.bettysplendens.com/articl...articleid=1114

OMG.. I keep coming back to this thread to look at them. I'll definitely be in the market for a female from that spawn.

Do you think you'll breed the female with the HMPK as well or will you try to find an HMPK female?
