The Sire is a non-metallic steel blue HM PK with a nice strong body, D-shaped caudal and broad dorsal. The anal is still a bit too pointy for my taste. The Dame is a non-metallic royal blue mask HM PK with a very good bodyshape and nice broad dorsal. She is a halfsister to the male as both fish have the same mother. The aim of this cross is to get offpsring with a more symmetrical look. 
T
he offspring (F1) will be HM PK with a good chance of DT PKs popping up. The color of the fry will be either  royal blue or steel blue (mask) with a chance of blacks (melano and/or black lace) popping up. Considering the background of both fish, there is a chance some fish will be marbles.

The Dame is also mother of BT170110.
