It's not that regular/classic/wild type of PK's is bad...... it's just a criteria we humans brand them by. VT and classic PK are things of the past. People prefer HM, HMPK, HMDT etc.

If you breed a HM to a classic PK, you won't get any HM in the fry.

Dragon scales is a cross breed between regular scaled splendens and wild betta which makes the scales look thick. What ever scales or tail type, they are splendens and can be cross bred. But to cross anything you'd have to have a plan, unless you're willing to either house or cull hundreds. Because other people wouldn't want them so you can't sell them.... the so called "mutts"

It all depends on what you want to achieve. If you want more HM, then get him a HM female. Since you want a combination of colors, get him a multi colored female. Dragon scaled would also be great (he is almost masked). But you would get pure/full dragon scales in F2 or F3.

Personally I prefer solid colors - all blue, all green etc. Or a five multi color which is often hard to get if you don't have the "combo" mutation genes. Further I love dragons because their scales look pearly ... sort of.... So, I would either get him a blue dragon HM or a multi colored dragon with a nice pattern

Just get a halfmoon girl in whatever color/pattern you think is pretty. Remember blue and reds are dominant, so get a multicolored halfmoon girl or an any color marble girl. Dragon is just the scale type. If you want Dragon then look for a multicolored dragon halfmoon girl, or a marble dragon halfmoon girl :) Hope that helps more! But yes, get a half moon.

Think of it like dogs... do you breed two huskies and get huskies? Or do you breed a husky and a collie? Which will be easier to find homes for?
