I actually got this pair out of a dark bodied spawn.
That's part of why I was so excited about spawning them, I figured for them to have the opaque coloration when they came from dark parents the genes must be really strong.
I think I was right too because the spawn from Henry and The Ice Princess is 90%-95% light bodied. I can not be sure of the coloration's yet but I am guessing I will get green and blue pastels and marbles.

Has anyone else here experienced this at all or have seen this?
I have not spawned enough to know
. I know that many of my fish come from Al Haskel on of the top breeders of white bettas so I am guessing that's where I am getting that coloration from. It's really far back in the line though I do remember that at least.
