Genetics question

Hopefully someone who knows more about betta genetics than I do can answer this question.

I saw this GORGEOUS fish on Aquabid a few weeks ago (which I now regret not bidding on) and I was wondering if it would be possible to breed for this sort of color pattern. I know that marbled bettas coloration constantly change but if patterns like cambodian, butterfly etc. can be achieved then can something like this?

When it comes to the marble gene its just not something that can be nailed down. The marble gene by definition is a gene that moves around on the chromosome so it isn't something you could make a trait out of.
