Looks like he will marble out a nice colour when he's older. I had a Koi pair of plakats and they marbled out really spectacularly from their original colours.
I hate it to :-/ my worry is the warp look on his caudual near his anal, though Im guessing that is probably more of an injury/from water conditions?
Would you say he is a Delta or a SD?

well, you learn somehting everyday BL. I always wondered what was so different about them. I thought monsters were suppose to be bigger or somehting.

If i have obsserved properly, I would call that a multicolored marble. He is very interesting.

As true as this is, it doesnt change the fact that of their true color category.

I dont know if I have come to seeing the Marbles certain multicolors as Koi just yet. I still call the mustard gas HMPK that I just got a mustard gas because I have heard of it for so long and it just sounds right.

It all depends on the person's thoughts.

I've always thought of bettas with his coloration/markings as Koi's.... but thats what I heard them called before I knew anything about it being a breeders specific "title".... but I guess technically he would be considered a mulit-colored marble
Would you say hes a Delta or a SD?

LittleBettas, if you do end up buying him, believe it or not, the transshipping is a breeze, especially if you choose a good transshipper. Jennifer Viveiros is incredible and really nice, and I've heard awesome things about Linda Olson.

edit: I personally would say somwhere in between a SD and D

Lol, the idea of using a transhipper has actually stopped me from purchasing a FEW bettas.... sooner or later I know Im going to need to jump over the hurdle...
Jennifer is closest to me... have you used her prior?
Would you say the issue with his Caudual is just an injury/how it grew or would it be a genetic thing?

I will vouch for Linda Olson. She's super nice, held my hand through the buying/shipping process, and takes fantastic care of your fish for the short time she has them. I was nervous, too, but the whole thing was a breeze, and my boys got here looking fat and happy. ;)

And whatever you call that guy...he's gorgeous.
