The Sire is a steel blue HMPK with a black lace underlayer. He has a nice strong body (topline ideally could be a bit more smooth). The caudal has a nice D-shape with long outer rays. The anal has a good trapezoid shape with a nice gradual slope. The dorsal is uniform rounded and ideally could have a bit more volume with a broader base. The ventrals have a nice length, volume and single tips. The Dame is steel blue HMPK with a nice long body with a smooth topline and very nice balanced finnage (nice D-shaped caudal fin, broad-based dorsal and parallel anal fin).
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be darkbody steel blue with a chance of black lace fish to pop up.

The Dame is also Mother of: BT221015A and BT031215.
