Question What is the difference?!?!?!?!

I put this in breeding because I figured you guys would know best...

Can someone please explain to me what the difference is between Multi colored bettas and marble bettas? I'm having trouble distinguishing between the two.

Could you tell me what these guys are?

Well to me it looks like
1. Marble (by the way this fish looks really bloated)
2. Multi Color
3. Multi Color marble

Marbles are kind of funny and can go from a solid fish to an almost no color in a week if they feel like it.

I have one spawn that is about 3-4 weeks old now and I breed her periodically and let the dad eat the eggs because she constantly produces eggs and it worries me... any suggestions on stopping this from happening would be super awesome she has been producing eggs since the day I got her even before I decided to breed.

Please don't breed that female.. she has a deformed spine (hunch back) and bad scales.

Females will always fill with eggs on their own. They'll either re-absorb or drop the eggs and do not need to spawn to get rid of them. Being eggy is not going to hurt them.

I don't plan on breeding her again. Also just wondering, what makes her scales bad?

The only reason I breed her to get rid of the eggs is because she doesn't drop or reabsorb them, she just gets bigger and bigger and I read somewhere that it can harm her if she doesn't get rid of them somehow.

The difference between marbles and multicolors... marbles change color and multicolors have multiple colors on them but don't change color. You can also see what looks like a rough faded pattern on marbles sometimes... like on yours.

The female should eventually drop her eggs.
