Dame: Royal blue HM PK

The Sire is a royal blue (blond) HM PK with a nice strong body and amazing broad dorsal. The caudal is nicely D-shaped and the anal finnage pretty parallel to the body. The Dame is a non-metallic royal blue mask HM PK  with some red wash. She also shows a nice broad dorsal. 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 turquoise, royal blue and/or steel blue (mask + blond) 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.
