Good thing I love marble :D

And this is why I am avoiding red bettas. I'm not fond of the reds unless it's pretty extreme, either extreme marbling or blotching, no solids, but I don't want them in my stock because red would be such a pain to get rid of.

but if a fish isnt marble and it carries the gene, that would make it a recessive one...

I believe he means once the gene is in the fish, you can't get rid of it. It might be recessive, but you can't breed it back out.

Geno and Pheno are different. Geno marbles aren't always Pheno marbles.

yes but for them to have the genotype and not the phenotype something would have to be dominant over the marble gene making it recessive. but what styggian said kinda makes sense (sorry if i spelled that wrong) :)

Not neccesarily. Marble is a wierd gene. Like DT is recessive so no fry will have DT until an inbred cross is made. Marble can be recessive and dominant with just one cross. So maybe co-dominant gene?
