The Sire is an amazing steel blue based melano HMPK! Formwise he is among the best fish I have owned sof ar. He has a very strong D-shaped caudal fin, a nice volumnous dorsal with long front rays which are directed forwards a trapezoid-shaped anal fin and matching ventrals. The Dame a strongbodied steel blue HMPK female with a smooth topline and balanced finnage. The caudal is nicely D-shaped, the dorsal has a nice broad base (front rays bit short) and the anal is nicely parallel to the body.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be steel blue HMPK which are carrying melano black. There is a chance of marble to pop up.
