The Sire is a strong-bodied metallic blue HMPK with a nice mouth-to-dorsal topline. He has a broad-based dorsal which is nicely directed forward. The caudal fin has a good 180 degree spread but the corners ideally should be sharper. The Dame is a compact and balanced metallic/dragon blue HMPK which is a full sister of the male.  
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline, balanced finnage. The offspring (F2) will be metallic/dragon blue HMPK with a chance of black dragons to pop-up.

The Dame is also Mother of: BT061012B & BT150213B.
