Dragon Allele

Hey guys, I have a few questions about the dragon phenotype. First, am I to understand that a Betta is considered a dragon if its scales are more pronounced? Secondly, is it recessive or dominant, or is it one of those phenotypes that is only strictly expressed when it is mixed with another expression?

Dragon is recessive. Breeding a dragon to a dragon will get you more dragons, breeding a dragon to a non dragon will get you non dragons and dragonscale genos (basically partial dragon scaling).

Interesting, thanks. Now, is that the same with the giant and the king alleles?

Yes, you'll need two giants to make giant offspring. One giant x one regular size fish will at most get you half giants or "kings."
