Sadly yes because he is a beautiful fish. He looks to have great form too. A marble (not quoting standards...but basically) has to be 50/50 color on body and into the fins...in other words, he would need to be (looks dragon scale) 50% white dragon scales and 50% blue dragon scale on both his fins and his body.
Marbles are one of the hardest to breed. I had a perfect marble until he got to his first show (I was there...stupid fish), he went solid with a bad butterfly....I was like WT-heck. I would breed him with a female with more of the white dragon scale look to try and even out his blue (in the fry of course :D).
