Dame: Metallic blue HM PK
F1
(Donny Adriaens, Belgium)
   
 
 
   

The Sire is a royal blue HM PK with a nice overall balance. He has a nice broad dorsal, parallel anal and sharp edged caudal fin. The Dame is metallic blue HM PK bred by my friend Donny Adriaens from Belgium. Her caudal shows a great shape. The pedigree of both fish does show some overlap.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, broad dorsals and quality finnage in my iridescent HM PK line.
The offspring (F1) will be metallic blue HM PKs which a chance of melano blacks popping up.

The Dame is also mother of BT010111A.
