I feel like the trickiest part is determining which genes are recessive vs. dominant. Well trickiest as in without experimentation. Do you know of any databases that have traits categorized and labeled for different species? I'm sure bettas and livebearers would be a fairly common topic.
...and now we have epigenetics just to confuse things further. Lamarck would be happy.
