@OMGemily:
To explain what MrV and Styggian meant; once marble is in your line, you will always produce marbled fry. Marbles are recessive in a sense that they don't affect the whole batch. But they are not easy to get rid of and will be carried for generations. So you will always produce one or two marbles for generations - though the parents you bred were not marbles. Sometimes you might not have any marbles in one generation but have them in the following generation..... IDK why.

thats weird... sooo... is it completely separate from color? because marbles can be any color cant they? (although i usually see them with a base of no color, cellophane i guess)

Basically. Cellophanes may turn into marbles. When they first came out marbles were only the black and white variety. Now theyre in every color form.

Marbling affects color pigments. M genes causes these pigments to change. In the early years M genes only causes color loss (at least in my experience). But now I see M genes causing color loss then regaining color - either returning to the previous color or changing into something different, sometimes changing 3-4 different color or pattern. .... Now I can understand why it's called the "jumping gene".

Yes, marbling can affect any color - regular, metallic, and dragons. Now M gene is also used to induce certain colors to appear (this is still here say because I haven't had any real experience to verify this).
