The Sire is lightbody yellow HMPK with a nice bodyshape (although body is slightly short). The caudal has a nice D-shape with a smooth appearance. The anal has a good trapazoid shape, the dorsal has a good volume with the front rays nicely directed forward. The ventrals have a good length and volume. The Dame is a gold HMPK with a nice torpedo-shaped body and smooth balanced finnage. 
This cross is a trial cross to learn more on the interaction between yellow and gold. With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be HMPK. Colorwise this cross will be a heterozygous metallic pastel but hope to see some of the yellow popping-up.

The Sire is also Father of: BT061116A & BT030117A.
