Haven't deal with the super red.
But I've think you will get some red, red marble and few red with dragon scale
If you breed I'll have to follow.
Since I'm interested with solid color fish(mask)

I prolly will try crossbreeding them but the problem is, I bought a male from petco he's super red HMPK but as of now he has swim bladder disease and I'm afraid that he was born it. So I might take him back tomorrow and pick his sibling. I like this guy better though cause of his finnage but can't really help it.

Here's the betta that I was talking about. He seems better than yesterday and I haven't seen any signs of SBD right now. He might have been overfed by the employee in petco when I first got him

Sorry, but that female isn't a red drgn. We call that a red copper drgn - her main strain is copper, not red. IMO you would end up with a number of colors:
Red copper drgn: contains copper, green, red, plus other possibilities that doesn't show.
Super red: extended red, non red (cambodian) plus other genes.

Probability: copper incl. silverish (mainly with red wash), a few greens (also with red), cambodian (various kind - clean, redish, with irid, and mixed), light red (which will throw some super red in the next generation), you might even get pale and/or white (not clean).
You shouldn't get yellow,orange, nor gold in F1. But might get them in F2-3

All possibilities may be half drgns.
....................

In case you want to improve form; if possible get a 8 rayed female because your male is a 2 ray.
