Merry Christmas Gregg, I believe you sir, please understand, I have no problem with your past experience, but I will hold my judgement for what occurs in the next 7 years.
Please understand, Cells and their parts, chromosones are not stone. Its just more carbon based parts that are mostly liquid.
My long term experience prompts me to think that a gene that has increased its expression as much as condas have in a mere 7 years, mostly likely will keep increasing its expression. With the pairing of super-super's to super-super's and low expression to low expression, I feel will reveal a wider range then is known now. And the conda gene coupled with yet unknown genes will surely have an effect.
I could offer you a number of examples for conversation if you like. Simply put, color and pattern is some reptiles like snakes is not lock down solid. There is a trend of quick change to suit changing conditions. I think Co dom genes is a very normal path of normal phenotypic expression. In most cases its how all couplings work. Only in the hobby is how normal non successful(non normal phenotype, morph) characters are passed on. These tools in nature are simple to understand, its a method of change without endangering the whole population. Again Merry Christmas
