Unhappy Bad News...ugh

so I got an e-mail from the breeder of the female. She died before she was shipped out. They gave me the option to replace her with one of two of with what they considered to be higher grade females but I disagreed. They were steel blue/white marble, the one that died was 4 color, Black, red, white and blue or one from that same family that was dark color with little white. None of the 3 were very colorful and in my opinion were not higher grade then the one I had so now I've got to look for a new female because none of the 3 offered were up to par in my opinion so I have chosen to go with a full refund. My male as far as I know is still doing alright and is from a more experienced and well known breeder from what I understand so hopefully I will not have the problem of death with him.

With marbles you can't judge by color. If the other females were sibling sisters you would have gotten pretty much the same results as with your original female. Because marbles can change to any color under the sun you can't go by what phenotype they are showing, your female may have turned completely blue by the time she arrived. Just because a marble shows a bunch of different colors doesn't mean that all their fry will do the same.

the marbles were not from the same brood, and she was considered Koi, where as they are marbles. I looked over all of aquabid and found nothing that satisfied me.

Koi is just a fancy name for marble. Same goes for "fantasy" bettas. The colors may be fancier but the genetics are the same. But unless they were siblings to the original female then you might not get the same results.

yeah, they weren't siblings. I'm keeping my eyes out for a female but like I said, so far I haven't found anything that interests me.
