Dragonscale X regular scale = what?

Just wondering what the outcome would be if I bred a dragonscale male to a regular scaled female??

I got 3 fish recently. A male DS and sibling female DS but the sibling doesn't have as amazing of color as the male and the other female that I bought to pair him with. Problem is, the female that has the better matching color isn't DS and I'm not sure what the outcome of that would be..

Also, here's the 3 of them, which female would you pick to pair him with?



Sibling (impossible to get a good picture of her, but overall has good form, only major fault I see is that her tail doesnt reach a full 180 and her first/last rays are a bit short)



Non DS female -- Form is not as bad as it looks in the picture

You wouldn't get any full dragonscales but you would get dragonscale genos- carriers of ds that show the trait partially. In f2 dragonscale would reappear.

You would get partial DS and non DS (Some should be DS geno). You might not have full DS until F3 - but this strongly depends on your pairing.

Thanks, I haven't read up on genetics for a while and never read much about DS considering all my pairings usually are either byh DS or both not.

May just wait a bit and see if I can find another female with DS and better coloring.

I have some 3 month olds that one parent was a dragon, other wasn't.. so far haven't seen any dragons, but there are a few with thicker, noticeable scales. Won't know fully until they are full grown, but at this time I don't believe I have any.
