The Sire is a darkbody HMPK with a nice intense red color. Ideally the mouth-to-dorsal topline could be a bit smoother. The Sire has a nice D-shaped caudal although the outer rim could be a bit smoother. The front rays of the dorsal are nicely directed forward but the base ideally could be broader. The anal is nicely trapezoid-shaped. The ventrals are nicely shaped. The Dame is a cambodian-based intense red HMPK with minimal traces of iridescence, a nice bodyshape and balanced finnage.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be light- and darkbody red HMPK. There is a chance of marble to pop up.

he Dame is also mother of: BT030518 & BT210518A.
