The Sire is a strong-bodied metallic/dragon blue HMPK with a nice mouth-to-dorsal topline. He has a nicely forward directed dorsal and a nice D-shaped caudal. The Dame is a compact and balanced metallic/dragon blue HMPK which is a full sister of the male.  
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline, balanced finnage. The offspring (F2) will be metallic/dragon blue HMPK with a chance of black dragons to pop-up.

The Dame is also Mother of: BT091112 & BT150213B.
