The Sire is a strong-bodied metallic blue HMPK with a nice mouth-to-dorsal topline. He has a broad-based dorsal which is nicely directed forward. The caudal fin has a good 180 degree spread but the corners ideally should be sharper. The Dame is relatively small in size with a thick "dragon" scaling which is well distributed on the body with promising finnage. 
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies and improve the reductions in webbing. T
he offspring (F1) will most likely be steel blue/red combtail/CTPKs with a chance of copper popping up. Some fry might loose the red due to the red-loss trait.
