The pictures of the last fish I posted are interesting because this fish had more color on body and fins last week. All of a sudden he became much more cello. I had never had this happen before and at first thought it was water params but nothing unusual there. After doing some research into it I think he has a case of the "jumping gene". This trait seems to be a temporary condition best explained here.

It is definitely possible :p I remember some poor owners who had their dark blue betta go white, or their white betta go really dark in color.

From all of my research, Koi are a form of Marble, so it's more than possible a couple will have the jumping gene from their mom (SIP)

He is the only one so far but I don't know if this is good or bad. I was planning on using this guy as a breeder. He was always the most advanced fish in this spawn and has been really healthy and super aggressive. He has had his own 10 g since he was 5 weeks old. Should you breed a fish with these genetics or not? Thoughts anyone?

A lot of people still like the marbles, as long as they're not VT. If you put him to a koi, it might tighten things up a bit.

An experimental spawn wouldn't hurt.

+1!

If it were me, I'd line breed him back to mom, that would help tighten it up and you would end up with more koi, marbles, BF's, and some solids
