Marbleing

    Just curious how fast/slow your betta changed color on you? Was it just "hey that not my fish" one morning or over the course of months? Im curious because i think Jenks is trying to. Either im blind or my very light colored fish has alot more blue speckles today. He just flared at me and i swear that spot was not under his chin before. Of course it could be that im only noticing them now because a spot on his back got darker. Sigh. Anyways back to the previous question, how fast did your betta marble?

    One of mine took a couple of months to completely change colour

    I brought home a beautiful platinum blue marble pk from the store one day... Moved him to a permanent tank and one day when I was feeding him, I realized he was a turquoise metallic with red wash.

    So the short answer is, it depends on the fish.

    Here is Illuminaty when I first got him on the first picture and what he looks now. He is getting color like dark blues and reds I could see his fins getting color. . He is also on the end of his fins get curly.

    Well Jenks is definately getting color. Both pectorals now have a strip of lavender. He has a spot under his chin between the gills getting larger and more purple. And on his head he has 3 spots in the shape of a perfect triangle. Cant get a halfway decent pic of his head but this one shows his pectoral and the spots under his chin. [​IMG]
