The Sire is a strongbodied cambodian-based red HMPK. He has a smooth topline and balanced appearance. The caudal fin has a >180 degree spread, nice shaped dorsal (base could be a bit broader). He has a nice parallel anal fin and matching ventrals. The Dame is darkbodied red HMPK with a nice strong body The finnage is nicely balanced. The caudal fin is not 180 degrees but the outer rays are nicely straight. The dorsal fin is broad based but the front rays ideally could be a bit longer. The Dame is a half-sister to the male.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be both dark- as lightbodied red HMPKs.
