Keeping PFRs and Red rili?

Would it be safe to keep pfrs and red rili while still maintaining the redness in the later generations If I were to breed them together would I get a 50/50 outcome of pfrs and red rili how would their coloration be?

You can improve red this way,however you will have a mix of both. Then you will have to cull cull cull to get back to almost 100% rili again.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

+1^ i had them together, and seen the red improve, but almost too much red in a way to look like a rili(?).
