breed marble out?

if i have a solid color betta with no signs of marbling but i know the spawn he was born in had siblings who are marbles, could i eventually breed the marble out of his line by breeding him to solid color lines?

If you constantly cross them to unrelated non marble background bettas - eventually yes. But I'm not sure how many generations it will take. Marbling will sometimes keep showing until 4 generations of such breeding.

On recent breeding, I bred a royal blue (marble line) to a blue dragon (no marble line) - F1 = no marble. But F2 gave me a lot of marbles. Never did F3.
