The Sire is a non-metallic royal blue mask with a very good bodyshape and balanced finnage. The Dame is a non-metallic steel blue/red with a nice broad dorsal. Sire and Dame are half-brother and half-sister as they share the same father.
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 non-metallic royal blue or steel blue with a chance of some red wash but this might be minimized in some fish when the red-loss genes from the male are inherited.

The Sire is also father of: BT161208 & BT270409
