Im not exactly sure how they get the marble, but my guess would be a normal convict crossed with an albino.
I realy like the female, she has great colors.

Marbled convicts are a rare trait so breeding two marbles should increase the odds of having marbled babies.

After several generations of fry, most of your spawn should consist of marbled fry.

I have two calico females in my 34 gal. They have tons of personality great fish. They are known in.the house as the twosome. They quarrel like an old married couple. Convicts are such great value. I have never seen marble before, both of them are lovely specimens.

I had two black convicts a breeding pair they they've had so many babies i eventually started using the fry as feeders i just couldn't keep them and no one wanted them. Convicts can really take over any tank no matter how big their protectiveness over their young is amazing its very interesting watching them.

Calico convicts are the same thing as marbled convicts either names are used.
