The Sire is big cambodian-based extended red HMPK bred by my friend Arie de Koning. The Sire has a big and strong body (topline could be a bit smoother). The caudal fin has 180 degree spread with a smooth appearance and straight outer rays but the corners ideally could be sharper. The dorsal fin has a broad base with the front nicely directed forward. The anal fin is in good proportion to the rest of the finnage and the ventral fins have a single tips with a good volume. The Dame is a darkbody extended red with a strong, long body, smooth topline and balanced finnage. She might be carrying orange as two of her siblings where orange.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be HMPK. Colorwise there likely will be dark- and lightbody reds with with a chance of and orange to pop-up.
