The Sire is cambodian-based extended red HMPK with a strong body. He has a a very nice shaped, broad dorsal. The caudal fin has a good 180 degree spread with nice long outer rays. The anal fin is nicely parallel to the body but still a bit too long. The Dame is also cambodian-based extended red and a full sister to the male. She also has a nice broad dorsal, caudal fin and nicely short anal fin. Both fish come from my 100th spawn. With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, broad dorsals and quality finnage in my red HM PK line. The offspring (F2) will be cambodian based red HM PKs with a chance of HM DTs popping up.
