if I bred my Dragonscale male and my Crowntail female what would I get?

I know genetics happen all on their own but what would the most likely result be? I know some say comb tail and others just don't know, but is there a possibility of me getting a crowntail with dragon scales out of the matchup?

then you will probably get sloppy hmctpk. or short combtails.

But there is a reasonable possibility right? Or if I bring the crowntail back in later in the line?

this is one of chard56's betta and i hope he allows me to use it but you will probably get fins that look like this except with more web reduction

Theoretically ;
Dragon x non dragon/metallic = 100% geno dragon
Geno x geno = 25% dragon, 50% geno, 25% non dragon.

You will need a minimum of 3 generation of inbreeding (probably more) to come up with a dragon CT. Or you could reintroduce both the dragon and CT then cross their offspring.

F1 will probably give you vt and low quality deltas.
