The joy of marbles...

My marble dragon male has made an incredible transformation from when I got him. He's all teal now! No more white at all :(

His AB picture:

The day he came (sorry it's all blurry):

A couple days after:

Today (it's sort of blurry and weird and the plant's in the way but you can see-no white except the tiniest little bit)

Just thought I show you all...
Is this in the right section? Not sure if it should maybe be in pictures or here...sorry if it's in the wrong spot.

I think his nieces and nephews got marble :) They're coloring up just like him, but now he looks like his brother. Too bad he's not as good a spawner :( But with a little work you'll get him to spawn.

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.

Thanks Jayy!

And, Mr Vamp, I think maybe the third time's the charm (knock on wood). I'm conditioning your way and with a new setup-completely rearranged and lower water level. Actually it's the female really, she's scared of him and she never even got any nips. I really hope that they'll succeed this time because I want to start a line of marble dragons with him. If the other female wasn't sick (and I don't think she has dropsy anymore because she isn't acting sick and is still alive) I would breed her but I can't.

I wish I had a PK... I regret not buying that shiny green king betta when I went to petco. It was between him and my current HM. My HM looks hideous now due to tail biting. Emo fish -_-

Also this line seems to produce really genlte spawners. My girl has had a toal of 1 missing scale both times she spawned. No nips in the fins at all. Also the fry are't eating each other, most of my spawns I get canabalism at this age.
