Breeding Cross Question

So im currently in the bidding for this female



For my gorgeous male

**not my actual male, he looks identical to this one though


Would she make a good pair with him? I really love her coloring and his as well. Hoping for colorful babies!

All the fry SHOULD have red fins and the dragonscale body, because red is dominant over yellow.

To an extent Matt, the red loss gene {Yellow} will come into play somewhere.
Matt, how old are your fish?
Surprised you haven't seen it yet?

My fish aren't even two weeks old, so obviously no color. Are you saying that the yellow will come in f1?

Yes yellow could come in due to red loss. They will show some red but it will come a go and the yellow will show. I believe. I don't know too much in red loss

I agree with Mah, at some pint the red loss will kick in..remember yellow works exactly like red, only it will sometimes just reduce the color {Very rare occasions} but it will effect it for sure..ask yourself hom many red and yellow bettas have you ever seen?

Actually Yellow is more associated with Non Red (NR) genes than Red Loss. The later is the vanishing of previously red pigments.

Yellow is easier to achieve in dragons than regular scales. So the above cross should give you both multi red fins (higher percentage) and yellow fins.
