The Sire is a heterozygous metallic royal blue marble HM PK with a thick body and a strong peduncle. The finnage is nicely balanced with a strong caudal, nice shaped anal a very broad-based dorsal. The Dame is a non-metallic royal blue mask with impressive balanced finnage. Interestingly, the mother of the sire is a full sister of the father of the dame.
T
he offspring (F1) will be HM PK. Because of the broad-dorsals of both parents, there is a chance of DTPKs to pop-up. The offspring probably will be either heterozygous or homozygous metallic. As both parent are royal blue based there is a chance of steel blue, turquoise or royal blue offspring. Based on the background of both fish there is a chance of blacks to pop-up. Some fry might show marbling.

The Dame is also Mother of: BT161208
