The Sire is great heterozygotic metallic steel (blbl +nms) (o)HM plakat  with a good balanced appearance. The dame is a  thick metallic PK female showing some great mask features. Interesting to know is that this spawn is not entirely unrelated as the mothers of these fish were sisters (BT210505).
The offspring (F1) will be short-finned and there is a good chance of HM PKs and maybe even DTs. The color of the fry will be a bit of a surprise as the exact color make-up of the female is unknown (could be Blbl ++ or BlBl ++). Looking at the background, there is a chance some platinums and/or marbles will pop-up.
