I thought HM was recessive? I was talking about the HM shape, not fin length. I was assuming that was what he meant and by HM, he really meant HMPK...

Long fin is dominant, halfmoon (more branching) is recessive. I also do not see the point in this. Like most here, I do not support fighting them, but I would keep the strains pure if you are set on it.

I dont support fighting either (wouldnt be able to stomach it) but its interesting to think about what would happen if such crosses were done.
I think if they are still tested each generation and can win against 5* and have hmpk form you may be able to get a 5* hmpk. HM would fail because his long fins. I wonder if dragon scaling would act as slightly extra protection too, or maybe because show fish have bigger bodies it might slow them down a bit
