The Sire is a non-metallic steel blue HMPK. He has a good bodyshape with a smooth topline. He has a D-shaped caudal fin, nice anal fin and ventrals. The dorsal has a pretty good shape but ideally the base could be a bit broader. The Dame is a half-sister to the male. The female has a strong body, although her topline ideally could be a bit smoother. She has a nice broad-based doral fin, good caudal spread and nice shaped anal fin.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be (metallic) steel blue and royal blue based HMPKs.
