    Hi again,
    I'm just a little concerned with one of my newer bettas. When I purchased him he was mostly white and purple. About a month has passed and he's mostly black and purple. I just wanted to make sure that this was normal marbeling... Thanks!

    ***And yes I know I'm about to do a water change

    Yes, most the time a white marbled fish will turn whatever color they are marbled with.

    Wow - I knew goldfish lost their black, but this is new to me! I love learning new things!

    Yeah I once had one that went from being gold with black spots to completely black. I still love her though

    Many years ago I had a Marble Betta that went from mostly white to mostly black, and then back again. Marble pattern can continue to change as long as the fish is alive.

    Makes me wonder what will happen with my new guy. He has gray streaks in his tail.
