Odd coloring question

First my betta marbled- I think he is done. But in the past month or two, his tail on the outer edge (1/2 an inch maybe) has gone transparent.. Do bettas transform to butterfly or start that way?

If he is a marble, he will change pretty regularly.. butterfly and marble share the same gene in a sense, so it won't be uncommon to see similarities. Butterflies do have solid bodies, so he may just pick up some of the characteristics of the butterfly in the way the marble goes on his fins - as for the transparent, any style can have transparent fins.. butterflies are characterized by the 2 distinct different colors in a certain line pattern on the fins, but there is no set coloration.

My new betta I got on Tuesday's dorsal fin was light blue.
On Wednesday, it was bright pink.
I have seen many people whose bettas are the same color for quite a long time, and then randomly start changing colors again.
It just makes them that much more interesting :)

You'd never know what your betta's color/pattern will turn out if he is a marble.
