i have a male royal blue marble/butterfly and a female royal blue marble that i plan to spawn soon. when i bought the male he was a royal blue butterfly but now has begun to "marble out" and losing the butterfly pattern and becoming blue. The female also had a white patch on her fins which has now "marbled out".

this is the boy before he marbled out

this is the girl
they have spawned once before but since it was their first time, the spawn wasnt successful.
i plan on re-spawning them in a few days.

here is an update on the pair. i am continuing to condition them and i add the female to his tank daily for 2 min and feed them mosquito larvae from my pond outside in order to get them into spawning condition (i have been doing this for 1 week and 5 days). i plan on putting them in the spawning tank later tonight.

note: the female has a bit of damage from last spawn but she is very keen to spawn and damage is healing well otherwise i wouldn't be spawning her.

"Marbling" Means one color is taken over by another. In this case, white is taken over by blue. I have a HMPK (Halfmoon Plakat... Shortfinned Halfmoon) that was originally red and clear with a little bit of white, and now he's blue.

Excited for this spawn!

Just keep conditioning:) are they heated when not in the spawning tank as well? When I Hagen someone that will not nest an they have been in the spawning tank a day or so ( female still in the container) I will release the female and see if that helps. As long as she is showing signs of submission first. It takes mine a day or two sometimes. My HMPK spawn was like that. He made a crappy nest the first day, then almost nothing the next day, so I let her out. The day I had eggs lol
