Marble bettas

So I know I posted a thread earlier asking about how often marbles change, but now I want to know...How can you tell if a particular betta is going to be a marble? Are there certain clues to look for?

You can tell it's a marble if it has random splotches of color on it. You can tell if it's going to change by well... Seeing different colors appear up slowly! ^^"

No, I think it's part of the gene or something to have AT LEAST 2 colors.

They should. They can't be a solid in the beginning so...

Well that makes sense but I remember someone else saying that a solid white could turn out to be a marble later....

My Betta (see avatar and album) was all one color, in fact he was mostly a non color. But a few weeks ago he started getting bluish grey spots and marks on his tail and red stripes on his anal fin and what looks like a red rash all over the top of his head. I've been assured it's just marbaling. I was very surprised because one, I'd never heard of marbaling, and two he's fairly big and I would not consider him young. So I thought if he was going to change color he would have already done that. He was labeled "Opalesque" and really was all one color.
