There is no guarentee you'll get orange and black fry but they are a nice pair. Good luck!

I think it very unlikely to express orange at all in ANY of the first fry.

Since the mutated non-red (nr2) gene which expresses orange is recessive, the female would have to at least be a carrier.

There could be some nr2 under all her opaque/melano funky dragon geno, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Since the male is orange I expect him to be homozygous nr2 nr2 in his bottom layer and therefore most (if not all) his offspring to be carriers (not expressers) of orange

I plan to experiment breeding sibling to sibling and daughter to father.

Hopefully line breeding works out for you and end up with fry like that male. That male is too sick... Good luck!
