The Sire is a darkbodied extended red combtail with a nice strong body although his "mouth-to-dorsal" topline ideally should be smoother. The reduction in webbing is already ~20-30% in the three unpaired fins. The Dame is not very balanced but does show some good characteristics like a broad dorsal and the rayextensions in all three unpaired fins.
With this cross I hope to take my CTxPK project to the next level by getting some shortfinned fish back showing a good reduction in webbing in all three unpaired fins.
The offspring (F1) will be either darkbodied or cambodian based extended red with a chance of both long- as shortfinned fish popping up. There also is a chance of DTs popping up.

25/02/12: Spotted a shortfinned DT male. Even though the distribution of the caudal lobes is not very good, he seems to show a good potential.
