How would a cross between a male dragon HMPK and a veiltail female turn out? Will plakats even breed with something other than plakat? I'm not concerned with all the technical genetics and breeding for selling and such, just curious! I got a HMPK today and my female is a veiltail and it just had me wondering.
I can answer part of this and I will try to answer the rest.
Yes, the two will spawn together(if properly conditioned and what not). But from what I know the veiltail is a dominant trait and you will get mostly veiltails. I'm not too great on genetics though.
Also, you won't get any dragons(unless the female is also dragon)
Long fin(Vaitail, hafmoon,delta and so on) is dominate to shortfin(pk's).
In the first generation you'll get vailtails that are PK geno, meaning they carry the gene's for short tail. You can then breed either a daughter to the PK father or brother to sister and you'll get PK's and maybe some vailtails or round tails.
Long fins are dominant over short fins...... that's what they all say. The fact is you wouldn't know the probable results unless you know the genetic back ground of your pair. I've had about 3 out of 300 that turned up long finned...... so much for long fin's dominance.
IMO the probabilities are: VT, RT/dT, PK. The percentage unpredictably varies.
Theoretically speaking, I agree with bambi - you need to inbreed F1, and later F2 to get perfect PK that will breed true.
