Marble is a gene. Bettas with the marble gene with have "splotchy colors" and will change color.

For instance I have an HM male whose body is mainly dark blue on the lower half and white on the top have that also has a butterfly pattern (blue fins ending in white). Well recently his body has begun to turn completely blue.

Here's a great article on the marble gene: http://www.bettysplendens.com/articl...articleid=1114

Beautiful, congrats on them! I just bought my first aquabid betta too, so I'm going to be spending at least $35 with shipping, ahhh! He's gorgeous though so I can't complain, hehe!

Wow thats so cool! I want a marble! haha is there any way to tell if its a marble, without having it for a long period of time to see if it changes color?

OMG.. I keep coming back to this thread to look at them. I'll definitely be in the market for a female from that spawn.

Do you think you'll breed the female with the HMPK as well or will you try to find an HMPK female?
