BF's are marble based fish. You will get mostly solids, some marbles and generally a few BF patterns. Most will also not be the ideal 50/50 split. So look for a good irid line that has marble in it, and then look for nice patterned fish to cross in.

Make sure the form is real good.. level anal and not too long. Good spread without being overly branched. Will take you a few generations to get some of the kinks worked out and consistent.. but should have some decent patterns by then.

I might have to wait a few more years then I anticipated, sounds like this is going to take up a lot more space then my mom wants. I do want to keep learning though, so I can breed them one day. So if butterflies have the marble gene then breeding two different colored bf to each other would probably leave me with a lot more marbles then butterflies right?
