Twin Bar Platy genetics question
 
I bought a yellow Twin Bar platy from Petsmart. I can only assume she was pregnant, as I got her from a tank of yellow twin bars. Her fry are not all displaying twin bar colors. Some are yellow with black fins and black noses. Some are the Tequila Sunset color. But none are bearing twin bar markings. Do Twin Bars breed true?

Live bearer's can store sperm(a few week's/months) from previous encounter's with other males of same or different color.
Resulting fry coloration could be a result of previous spawning's.
