Peanut and Hattie's fry?

I'm just curious, but what would their fry look like? Peanut's (red) a SD PK
and Miss Hattie (purple) here is a HM. She still needs to color up, but she is really a blue dragon. Peanut's fins still need to heal from a fight he had with another betta at the breeder's- so imagine his fins are full

Actually, there is no such thing as a "blue dragon" :P

You would probably get some muti-colors, and some dragons, partial dragons, ect. But for dragons what really matters is the color underneath the dragon pattern. She looks like a copper to me, so maybe some coppers with dragon patterning, and stuff like that. Red coppers as well. And Metallics, because copper is a homozygous trait, so that means 2 of the same gene is copied, copper x non-copper would give you about 50% metallics if you are lucky.

Yeah, Hattie is a copper. Not sure what you would get but you could possibly get a copper dragon which is what my boy Leon is. Beautiful fish. I LOVE Haddie.

I really like the the spread of her dorsal its almost as big as her anal. I wonder does she have double tail in her background? I *Think* she is a symmetrical, whereas he looks Asymmetrical. (its kinda hard for me to tell at the angles.) These are my nooby observations
