What fry will I get?

I have a black and white marble split tail male that has taken a fancy to my red cambodian crowntail female. It will be his first time breeding so I am expecting him to fail as a first time parent and just want him to gain experience. That being said I am going to let him have this "fling" with the CT girl. My question is, if the fry survive (which I am prepared for) what will be the tail and color possibilities?

Random coloring. Maybe some marble.

Cool

Hard to tell without knowing the parents exactly what will come out.

Black and White marble DT x red cambodian CT
What do you mean by black and white? Black as in black head or actual black color patches. And white- as in paper white or celophane white.

Assuming that he is a white opaque;
color probabilities - red cambodian, irid colored cambodian, cambodian with irid on body and fin, pastel like colors, irid colored multi, plus other colors (not sure what the black might throw)

Fin probabilities - read "form breeding" sticky by KadenJames.
You should end up with DTCT geno - physically you wont have equal web reduction, only slight protruding ray (combtail), regular single tails, long dorsal, uneven caudal lobes (comb and regular form),

Also depends greatly on the genetic background of the parents. If they are petstore bettas, it's very difficult to tell what you will get. You'll probably get a lot of oddball colors, majority of the fry being combtail with sparatic web reduction. Petstore mass-breeders will jumble up the genetics of their bettas in order to get more variety out of the offspring for quick sales.
