The Sire is strong bodied metallic blue/red HMPK. The finnage is nicely balanced with a D-shaped caudal fin and good shaped dorsal and anal fins. The ventrals have a good length and volume with single tips. The Dame is a metallic blue/red HMPK with a nice torpedo shaped body, smooth topline and balanced finnage. She has a nice broad-based doral fin, good caudal spread and nice shaped anal fin. The dame is a sibling to the male and I suspect that both fish are carrying the opaque factor.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F2) will be (metallic) blue/red HMPKs of which some might have an opaque influence.
