Outcome of Butterfly Hm x Butterfly Hm

Sorry if it seems like I'm spamming, I'm just trying to learn all I can before I eventually breed
If I bred a Turqoise and white butterfly male Hm to a Salamander butterfly female Hm, what woul the outcome of the fry most likely be?

Most would have the butterfly coloration but it's really a grab bag. You may get about 1/4 looking like the father and 1/4 looking like the mother (just coloration wise) and the 1/2 are just mixed and random. It depends on their lines as well so grandparent genes that went dormant could come into play in their spawn.

I'm hoping to get a female with a little bit of the marble gene hidden somewhere and really nice butterfly lines on both so that I'll have some marble and some butterfly, or would they all be marble if that was the case?

It depends on what the father is carrying. If he's also got marble genes, chances are most of the fry would have it as well. I believe marbling is a dominant gene but I'm not terribly certain about that.

I hope that only one of them has marble genes. I love marbles and butterflies so I think it would be great to breed them
