Marble Genetics

I understand that the marble gene is dominant. But would the fry all have random coloring if the father is a blue/white marble (I think he may be starting to get some red :( and the mother is white with blue grizzling on the fins? In other words, what colored fry would I most likely get? x]

Most likely blue and white, but it all depends. Some of the red genes can activate and make some red marble bettas, but who knows? It's all a guessing game and a game of nature. Just let the genetics run their course and see whatcha get! :)

Though the parents do not show any red at all, but if they carry the gene it will pop up in fry. I'm not sure what you mean by blue-white nor white-grizzle but if my guess is right, they should carry cambodian genes (cambodian carry red coloring).

You should also get blue, turquoise, and steel blue (blue x blue) and some light colors (both male and female carry white). Marble will cause any individual to change pale and back colored again. The final color or pattern is unpredictable.

Blue dragon (looks like drgn scale) should carry at least blue, drgn, marble. What is hidden can't be predicted.
The female looks like a cambodian x irid cross.

Though daddy is marble, color/pattern will follow the parents (and grand parents) - difference is that any individual may suddenly change color/pattern. The final outcome of these are unpredictable but it should follow the parent's genetics.

I believe the cambodian gene is dominant.
