The pictures of the last fish I posted are interesting because this fish had more color on body and fins last week. All of a sudden he became much more cello. I had never had this happen before and at first thought it was water params but nothing unusual there. After doing some research into it I think he has a case of the "jumping gene". This trait seems to be a temporary condition best explained here.

It is definitely possible :p I remember some poor owners who had their dark blue betta go white, or their white betta go really dark in color.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

From all of my research, Koi are a form of Marble, so it's more than possible a couple will have the jumping gene from their mom (SIP)

He is the only one so far but I don't know if this is good or bad. I was planning on using this guy as a breeder. He was always the most advanced fish in this spawn and has been really healthy and super aggressive. He has had his own 10 g since he was 5 weeks old. Should you breed a fish with these genetics or not? Thoughts anyone?

A lot of people still like the marbles, as long as they're not VT. If you put him to a koi, it might tighten things up a bit.

An experimental spawn wouldn't hurt.

+1!

If it were me, I'd line breed him back to mom, that would help tighten it up and you would end up with more koi, marbles, BF's, and some solids
