Oh, were you talking about the male I posted that started out this thread, Basement Bettas? I had thought you were referring to my dragon male on p. 5.

Just because he is not perfect dose not mean he can't give you one or two good fry. Then you can use the good offspring of his to breed next time.

I am not sure of the age of the white dumbo but the male dragon is building a nest. Has anyone tried this type of cross?
I have not quite discovered how to post pictures yet but I have uploaded an album of the female and the two males.

What would be the likely outcomes of a super black x orange dalmation spawn? Not saying I would do it... I'm just curious.

I bought this OHM boy today to go with my DT girl. He's actually a sibling of hers. I am hoping they should make for a really fun spawn, should I ever get the hang of this! I should get DT and DTHM fancy dragons in a variety of colors?

Matt, I'm utterly new to breeding, but I do know that Bettysplendens.com says about orange dalmatians:
Quote:
However, the Dalmatian spotting acts as a dominant gene, overpowering all else and affecting nearly every member of a spawn with darker orange or red splotches of color in the fins. This only seems to affect the Non Red fish -- yellow, orange and blue/yellow or blue/orange bicolors -- and not irids or reds. I assume (but it hasn't yet been tested) that breeding an Orange Dalmatian with an iridescent fish will produce offspring with spots affecting their yellow areas in the F2.
Is that helpful at all?
