Just got him a few days ago at the local Petco, he is #2 and I didn't plan on another one, but I couldn't pass him up:)

He was sold as a double tail, but I wasn't sure what the color is.

Thanks from a newbie!

The clear color is known as cellophane...but judging by those streaks on his fins, he might marble up! Reminds me of my first betta; when I got him I thought he was a cellophane DBT, but then he went marble on me. Anyway, your fish is very pretty!

Thanks, so will he become less see through as time goes on or are you saying his fin color may change?

Also he is very mellow, I put his tank next to my other male and he was uninterested, but my 1st guy Charlie noticed him right away. Is there such a thing as a less aggressive male beta???? He doesn't seem sick, he swims around his tank all day and seems curious when I come near, I just haven't seen him flare yet.

if your treat everynow and then with Bloodworms, it will help boost his color up (or so im told by my LPS).. also i was thinking he looks like a Cellophane Marble myself, but the tail kinda looks like a DoubleTail to me..


interesting and beautiful never the less, nice find...

Cellophane and marbles are colours he is most defiantly a double tail :) so his title would be cellophane dt or marble dt etc

You never know how much a marble will change, my "cellophane" ended up entirely blue, other than his head, which remained the pale color. Some marbles will just get a few patches of color, others will get very patchy. Does he have any dark colored scales on his body? It kind of looks like it in the first picture.

I guess I would just be happy if Elric remains healthy, it is sooo interesting to learn about all the color and fin type combos there are.

LolaQuigs- it does look like he has dark scales in the first pic, but that is with a flash and his pearl comes out, but the second one is with no flash and his body is colorless except for the red of his blood. I guess it will be interesting watching him grow up and I will enjoy him regardless of how he ends up.

He is so different from Charlie (CT), he is very docile and curious. and Charlie seems like he is always grumpy. maybe I am just projecting human emotions on them....LOL

I didn't like marbles at first, and was really disappointed when I discovered my guy was one. But then I realized how much fun it is to watch them change and see how they turn out. He is beautiful now, and I am sure he will be beautiful if/when he changes. If he does change, definitely post pictures so we can see the difference!
