That's awesome! Is there a way to predict if a betta will marble? Are there definite traits that would be present?
I can't believe the amount of change you had, very cool stuff!
Does this guy have potential?
Hmm.....I'd say no on the marble with this guy. He looks like hes from a Cambodian spawn, just a pastel Bi-color though. He may end up surprising you of course, but I'd say is highly unlikely he'll marble.
Hes adorable though. xD I have a soft spot for CTs. <3

Not at all. ^-^
first of all hes a lovely little guy, gotta love those reds! xD But I'd also say its highly unlikely he'll marble. The blue looks like just a touch of iridescence. ;)
Whew! I'm actually glad because I was just watching him swim around and I really love his colors now! I'm glad that he's settled in to his new home and swims around more.
I wish I didn't make the fatal error of feeding blood worms before real food... I'm going to fast him, and start him on only NLS pellets.. He's quite spunky.
I'm going to offer them tomorrow when I get home..and only offer them until he eats.. I'll soak them in garlic too..
Yeah, I love him! I just lost a new betta who decided to jump out his tank... so I went out and got a new guy, and my co worker said I should get a peach one because they are pretty, and he was pretty close to peach and gave me the puppy dog eyes :)
He's very photogenic, so I didn't have to do much work :) I liked how the sunlight hit him at the right angle and made him glow.
Good luck! Hopefully your guy isn't as picky as my Legolas.....took me two weeks to get that little bugger to eat his pellets. ;P THEN he tried to turn himself into a PK.....sigh....
Awww, I'm sorry for your loss. D: At least you have this lovely little guy now though. <3
Ahhh, I love it when I get guy or gal whos photogenic! xD I'm kinda a bit of a photography nut, I LOVE taking pictures and since my fish are right there in my room with me they generally become my most common subjects....xD I love it when I go to take pictures and they pose for me. <3
Ooooo, very nice registereducer! Very neat change on him! xD
I've also find pale/white/opaque bettas often turn into marbles pretty often, actually. Not sure what it is, but the gene seems to wiggle its way in there somehow. xD

Does anyone have a progression of their own they'd like to share?
Or does anyone have a progression showing color development and change with age, I find this very fascinating.
i will definetely be follwing this thread! I just got a BABY (HES UNDER AN INCH) HMDT and he is completely cellophane except these big black beady eyes lol. He has his own thread. He is already shwoing signs of iridescense and blue, so i know he will marble ^^ great thread!
