genetics?

this actually has nothing to do with breeding, but it does have to do with genes so i thought this would be the best place to ask.

is there any connection to the gene that makes bettas blue and the one that gives them crowntails? i was just wondering because, at least in my experience, the majority of CTs seem to be blue... or black... but almost never red

No. Tail types are different genetics. CTs come in every color that HM or HMPK forms do.

then inbreed

Have to agree with mrvampire on this one.
Not all the babies will come out marble but a few will
It's the only one that will cross to any color n still pop out the trait
Will multicolor is the same to but it's really hard to sell at a decent price

I'd have to say red is most dominant IMO.

Red and marble. Marble can be introduced from non-marble parents carrying the gene. Once you add marble... you're not getting rid of it.
