The Sire great balanced grey/silver copper mask HM PK which became 1st placed and reserve Best of Show at the 8th EHBBC show in Hannover, Germany. I'm very curious whether this color will be inherited. The color could be caused by the presence of opaque and/or blonde genes. The female is metallic blue HM PK with some mask features and is a F1 from my line (she is a sister of the female used in spawn BT100207).
The offspring (F1) will be HM PK with a chance of getting DT PKs. The colors are probably metallic steel blue and (grey?) copper/gold with some chance of some
light bodied fish or marbles popping up. 

The Sire is also father of: BT080307, BT170307 & BT010407.
The Dame is also mother of: BT080107

29/05/07: Youngsters in free-swimming stage. Removed the Sire.
14/06/07: There are 5 youngsters left which are feeding well on BBS.
31/07/07: There are 4 youngsters left (3 blues and 1 copper). One of them shows a nice full dorsal.

   
       
   

19/08/07: This has 3 females (2 blue, 1 copper) and 1 blue male. I jarred one male and female. I really like the full dorsal of the male. Here some pictures of them now 12 weeks old:
