good CT pair?

I know I've been asking alot of these questions, but what colors would I get if I bred my blue marbled ct male with my mostly blue (has a tad of red/brown) ct female? Would the fry be marbled? Would the reddish color on the female be on the fry too? I'm really wanting more like Zephyr (the male).
Thanks for the help!

You would have a very good chance of getting marbled fry when you have marbled parents. Best of luck!

A lot of odd ball color.
Do to the color of both fish.
With your male being a marble it can produce solid/multi color/marble
Then your female being a multi color it can produce solid/multi
Bottom line there no true guess of the out come of this spawn.

Well the fry will definitely have marble and some red wash.

Though you will have mostly marbles and very different color patterns.

Anyway, that female seems to be very small. About how big is she?

There will be a lot of fry, so there is a good chance of at least some being marbeled. There will be a nice mix in there.

The female does appear to be small compared to the male, though. They need to be fairly close in size, or the female be bigger, in case the male gets too aggressive.

I'm not sure exactly how big she is, but I just got her so she should grow. Two of my other tiny girls really started growing once they were eating well (too well really, lol).

Just make sure she's close to the male's size before you put them together.

I'm probably not gonna breed them until September (unless I just can't wait, lol) as I'll probably be working full time in summer, than vacation at end of August. So hopefully by then they'll be ready. How much should I sell the fry for? And at what age?
