Improvement/marbling log in progress (image heavy)! Opinions?

So I've heard some speculation that my baby boy Nereus might be a marble? I've decided to keep a casual log of any color changes he might have in the future (with some notes as well if I notice anything that doesn't show up in photos). I know marbling might take time, if he even is a marble (any additional advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated!).

I'll also just be using this to track his improvement, since he was skinny and shy when I first brought him home and he's already begun to morph into a gorgeous, gregarious fish.



DAY ONE


DAY THREE:



DAY 7 (TODAY)





So what do you guys think? I think I can already see some darking coloring on this tail and his side. The Day One images are a bit more washed out and aren't as good quality-wise, but he was very, very pale when I brought him home. Do you think he's just coloring up a bit, marbling, or both?

He's doing the same thing our Don Quixote is doing. Started off solid white, and now he's grizzled looking with blue and red fins.

He -could- still be a marble, but we won't know for sure until he colors up some more.

I'll love him either way, just liked I loved him as white.
I love how bettas change! (:

It's not obvious in the pictures but he's taken on noticeable color and he's darker than he was last time I posted!

I posted a thread about how much my marble has changed, I don't know if you've seen it.

A lot of the pictures in my computer are less than a month apart, and Mushu looks like a totally different fish!

I'm looking forward to watching Nereus change color!

I can't wait to see what color he ends up being. I'll be stalking this thread thread.

<3 thanks, guys. He's so sassy and moody. Probably the most personality I've ever seen in a betta. I'm sure he'll get the colors to match, haha. Or if not, he's already pretty.
