The Sire is a metallic steel blue HMPK with a strong body and smooth topline. The caudal fin has a >180 degree spread but the webbing is a bit too extensive. The dorsal has a pretty good shape but the front rays ideally could be a bit longer and the anal fin could have a better trapezoid shape. The ventrals have a good length and volume with single tips. The Dame is a metallic blue 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.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be (metallic) blue HMPKs with a chance of red wash popping up.
