Dragons need a dragon male and a dragon female to get the full effect.

VT is dominant over all other tail types so if you cross anything with VT you will get primarily vt, however you may get a small number of deltas.

Color genetics are very hard to get. Basically if you want a certain color your BEST bet is to get a sibling pair with the colors you want, because unless you know the genetic background of the fish your going to breed you have no way to know what you'll get out of your spawn.

So for dragons I have 3 males that are dragon scale, they will produce me partial dragons and fry with the dragon geno so if I spawned a sibling pair I should come out with full dragons right?

I think that's what 1fish is saying o.o you could get dragons, but chances are the veiltail would come out most

Check out the classifieds section. I think there was someone selling dragon plakats and I know there was someone selling HM or PK fry as well.
