The Sire is cambodian-based extended red HMPK which was bred by my friend Arie de Koning. He was the result of crossing an red HMPK pair Serkan GŁndogdu which was F1 offspring of a pair from Chaba (Thailand). Hes has a nice strong body & peduncle and pretty good mouth-to-dorsal topline. His caudal fin is nicely D-shaped with sharp corners. His anal is nicely parallel to the body and a relatively small-based dorsal with nicely extended first rays. His color is really intense red with some underlying black scaling. The Dame is a cambodian-based extended red DTPK resulting from an outcross of my own line to a female of Serkan GŁndogdu. She shows a pretty good caudal spread but the lobes could be more evenly distributed. She has a great extented dorsal which nicley matches the anal fin.
With this cross I hope to fix a broad dorsal with nicely long first rays, the strong bodies & quality finnage and intense red color (without black scaling and blue iridescence) in the offspring. The offspring (F1) will be cambodian based red HM PKs.
