The Sire is vital heterozygotic steel blue (blbl +nm) HM plakat  with a good balanced appearance and strong caudal with good raysplitting. The dame is a  heterozygotic royal blue (Blbl +nm) PK female. This spawn is a good example of linebreeding as the mother of the female is the grandmother of the male used in this spawn.
The offspring (F2) will be HM PK with a chance of getting DT PKs. Colorwise the outcome of this spawn should theoretically be as follows:

12.5% Steel blue (blbl nmnm), 12.5% Royal blue (Blbl nmnm), 25% Heterozygous metallic steel blue (blbl + nm, 25% Heterozygous metallic royal blue (Blbl +nm), 12.5% Copper (blbl ++), 12.5% Teal (Blbl ++). There is a chance some marbles pop-up.
