Dame: Metallic steel blue HM PK
F1
(Sven Lorenscheit, Germany)
   
 
 
   

The Sire is a balanced opaque HM PK with a strong body and balanced finnage bred by Jolanda Wisseborn from the Netherlands. He shows a nice broad dorsal, a parallel anal fin and a D-shaped caudal fin. His color is really white in appearance suggesting this fish is a steel blue based opaque (C bl Si Nr Op). The Dame is metallic steel blue HM PK with a thick iridescent layer that covers almost the entire body. She is bred by Sven Lorenscheit from Germany. The Dame has a nice bodyshape with a smooth topline and balanced finnage. My own line has some influence in the background of both lines.
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies, broad dorsals and quality finnage in my iridescent HM PK line.
The offspring (F1) will most likely be (metallic) steel blue HM PKs which a chance of red wash. There is a chance of DT HM PKs popping up.
