Do you see really light fry and then some that are really dark?

I recently started seeing this in my fry about a year ago and forgot to ask other breeders if they might have seen this.

Yes actually I do see that. The only spawn I didn't see it in was my blacks.

I used to only get dark colored bettas, but now I'm getting a variety. Though I used to think that the lighter ones were the female and the darker ones the males, but this is not the case LOL.

Even when I try to breed dark colors, I get light fry in the mix. I don't mind, I love surprises that are good.

It really depends on the genetics a lot.

I see now that A LOT of the other colors that were crossed months and 10s of generations ago, are starting to emerge again. In some of the recent spawns that I had a few months back, I found that there were just a few that had the "old" colors that I crossed generations ago.

Has anyone else here experienced this at all or have seen this?

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.

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.
