Exclamation UH is he a marble?!?

SOOOO.........I am currently raising my first spawn ever, and what I thought was my male was the same or almost same colouring as my female. First pic is of him when I spawned him, second pic is now....(has become a tail biter!)

does that mean hes a marble????

Funny thing is my fry suddenly have orange colours on them! a couple of them have nothing but orange on them...
where did the orange come from! LOL...

The white around his face and body in the first photo makes me think he's marble.

I've found a lot of my blue marbles have developed red as they've gotten older, which looks what is occurring on your male's anal fin.

Interesting....

Is your male a dragon? I had one that looked bright blue (not royal) when I got him but then looked green months later.
Could you load pictures of the female and the fry, specially the orange ones.
