Male green/turquoise red drgn x female red cambodian =
Multi partial drg, multi cambodian, grizzle - probably multi as well, in the least.

HM x VT = VT, delta tail

HM x CT = messy fins in F1. Inbreed them to the direction you want - HM, CT, comb/halfsun

Depends on your goal.
HM x VT is usually done to lengthen HM fins . . . You see lots of HM have thin rays. To make them thicker, HM are crossed to PK. This often makes fins shorter. So later these offspring are crossed to VT to achieve longer fins.

HM x CT is usually targeted to widen CT spread.

Breeding for "perfection" actually involves constant cross breeding - unless of course you started with an almost perfect pair. What is "best" is whatever suits your goals. Both crosses will need about 3 generations of inbreeding.

In that case cross your HM to a VT and work your way to later get them back to the HM form.
inbreed the F1 with the widest spread. Theoretically F4 = F0. So by the fourth generation you should have HMs. You can also enhance the HM trait by re-introducing new HM genes.
