  6. Is My New Betta a Marble Betta?

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    I just got a male betta. I haven't owned any fish for a year, and my last three bettas I had only lasted me four years. I felt bad at Petsmart so I bought a half moon male betta. What I find odd is, he is so see through that you can actually see his bones and red veins. He has a large tail but...
  7. Toothpaste's Marbling

    Hello! I've decided to create a "Marble Log" for my newest betta, Toothpaste. Less than a week ago he was a white/iridescent VT male, but he's started to marble already. Some blue streaks have shown up on his tail and a few scales are turning blue. His cheeks are dark blue and aqua so I'm...

    Hello! I just got a new betta from a local fish store, and he is very beautiful! But as I moved him from his cup to his tank , I noticed his color changed depending on how the light hits it. He can go from blue to pink to green! I was wondering what this coloration would be called.

    Betta Pictures
    Just got this sweet boy a couple days ago from Petco. I named him Mr.Marbles because I think he is a marble, although he was labeled just as a "butterfly male" on his Petco cup. When I introduced him to his new tank, he was very shy at first. I added more hiding places and plants and he is...
