The Sire is a non-metallic melano black HM PK with a nice broad dorsal. The anal is still a bit too pointy for my taste. The Dame is a non-metallic royal blue (blond) HM PK with a very good bodyshape and nice broad dorsal and nicely parallel anal finnage. The number of rays in her caudal nicely complements that of the male. 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 heterozygous metallic 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.
