The Sire is a strong-bodied blue/orange dragon HMPK with a nice mouth-to-dorsal topline. His body is a bit short and ideally could be longer. He has a nice D-shaped caudal and full ventrals. The dorsal ideally could be a bit broader and the anal a bit more parallel to the body. The Dame is relatively small in size with a thick "dragon" scaling which is well distributed on the body with promising finnage. 
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline, balanced finnage as well as the blue/orange dragon color in the offspring (F2).
