What would I get?

If I bred Horatio and Maisie? Maisie's a HM and Horatio's a DT. I think they're still a little young, but just wondering. I'm bad at educated-guessing colors. But hopefully some breeding will give me experience. Maisie was the closest to Horatio's color I could find (and they're not even that close.) And besides, all the other dragon girls weren't full dragons. Patches of regular scakes here and there. They weren't very active either....

Most likely you'll get some multicolor Deltas,Super Deltas, and maybe a few Halfmoons. They both have red on them and since red is dominant you'll probably get some fry with red wash on them. Also a few dragons are possible from this spawn. Nice pair BTW

Thanks. They're both dragons. I'm actually now thinking on breeding Maisie to Felix... hard to say!

Umm this one's harder haha to be honest I have no idea what colors you'll get ( Since they're very different colored) but for tail type DT,SD,and HM's as well. You will get some dragons and I'm not sure but I think you could get some red butterflies from this spawn.

This looks like an awesome pair, I'd love to see what the fry look like!
And yeah, I'd guess you would get lots of reds and some interesting variety in finnage. But that's based on research, not experience from me.

Sorry to sound disappointing, but I think maisie is more of a RT while horatio may either be a RT or a young VT, felix's picture isn't too clear (tail not open). Deltas and HMs are not rounded like that but rather pointed (?) ... (look at dramaqueen's or my avatar). So you will likely get rounded tails as well. If they came from a HM/Delta line, you may get 1 or 2 deltas.

As for colors, I would breed the first pair because they originally came from the same line (green and copper). I think Felix looks like a platinum which I know little of (different people say different things about their origin and I have yet to discover by experience). If you breed the first pair, you should get both green and copper with red wash. Some may also be sort of light metallic green. I'm not sure what you'll get from the second pair.

Recently I bred gold fins with gray/copper wash on body (newly bought) to a pure copper female (my own line); resulting in dark copper, some with red wash fins.

I hope this helps. Good luck.
