The Sire is a pastel marble dragon HMPK with a strong body and smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline. The dorsal fin has a great form with the front rays nicely long and directed forward. Good D-shaped caudal fin with sharp corners although the branching is a bit heavy here and there. The Dame has a strong body, smooth topline and balanced finnage and a 12-ray dorsal. The Dame is a full sibling 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- and lightbodied metallic/dragon HMPK with a varying degree of red wash and marbling.
