The Sire is a great large sized, full-bodied red HM PK with a nice shaped anal! The Dame is a sibling of the male and also shows a full body with nice intense red coloration. 
The offspring (F2) will be 100% red with a good chance of HM PKs popping up. Hopefully the strong body, size and anal finnage will be maintained.

   
 
 
   

17/10/08: Pair spawned.
18/10/08: Fry hatched!
20/10/08: Fry of the first batch in free-swimming stage. Removed the sire.

   
     
   

29/10/08: The fry is feeding well on artemia/BBS. Look at those full orange bellies!

   
       
   

21/11/08: The fry is now 5 weeks old and starting to show some red in the finnage. The bodies of these fish already seem to be very strong. Today the fry was transferred to a bigger grow-out.

   
       
   

14/11/08: The fry is now 8 weeks old and developing really well! They are growing really fast and I had to jar the first males as they were very agressive to the other males in the grow-out. This resulted already in some damaged anal and caudals, but that will heal in the coming weeks. The colors on these fish is really intense deep red. They do show a slight spoonhead, which has to be improved in the generations to come.
On the left picture you can see a picture of one of the jarred males without flash, whereas the smaller picture inside shows the same male photographed with flash. The male on the right picture is also photographed with the use of flash:
