The Sire is a great intense red HM PK. He is an F2 from my own line and the first fish which shows a shape going into the direction of HM PK. The anal and ventrals are still too long but the bodyshape, caudal, and dorsal already have a great shape. The Dame is a sibling of the male and also shows a full body with nice intense red coloration. 
The offspring (F3) will be 100% red with a good chance of HM PKs popping up. Hopefully the anal finnage will be more in balance.

The Sire is also father of BT100208
