    Just wondering because I like them both but since they are expensive fish I'm thinking of buying 3 turquoise and 3 pigeon instead of 4 turquoise and pigeon.

    Yes they can breed together. They are just different colors of the same fish :)

    The pigeon genes will probably be dominant. The fry will most likely be dirty pigeons, meaning lots of black pepper.
