The Sire is a metallic steel blue HMPK with a strong body, smooth topline and balanced appearance. The caudal fin has a >180 degree spread. The dorsal,  anal fin and ventrals are nicely matching the rest of the fish. The Dame is a metallic royal blue HMPK with a nice torpedo shaped body, smooth topline and balanced finnage (D-shaped caudal and parallel anal fin although the dorsal fin ideally could be a bit broader at the base). The Dame is a half-sister to the male.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be (non-)metallic steel blue and royal blue based HMPKs.
