The easiest way is to check the gill plates.If the gill plates have some white coloured or thick coloured scale,that betta is a marble.

Swarovski is a black/white marble - he's got black streaks on white and some irredescent scales on his side. Definitely a marble! Though he has yet to change.

Marbles just change. Can't tell if they will or not. A one hundred percent blue betta can marble out of nowhere.

Thick means much more intense coloration or looks lighter or darker.

Marble-ing is caused by a certain gene. It can't be seen physically - you cannot predict if a fish is marble or not. You know when they begin to change.

Marble has nothing to do with color patterns. A solid could have marble genes as much as a multi colored betta.

Well I imagine it is more obvious to tell if the betta has splotches of color. That's weird though because I read an article on the IBC website about orange Dalmatians and it said the seldom (if ever) change.
