The Sire is a blue/red multi HMPK with a strong, well shaped body with a smooth topline. The finnage shows a good length and form giving this fish a nicely balanced appearance. The Dame is a royal blue with a strong body and smooth topline. She has a nice D-shaped caudal fin with nicely long outer rays and sharp corners. She has a broad-based dorsal with nicely long rays at the front which are nicely directed forward. The anal fin is nicely parallel and the ventrals are of good length and volume. Interestingly, the mother of the Dame is a full sibling to the parents of the Sire.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be HMPK and can be both light- and darkbodied iridescent with a varying degree of red wash. 

The Dame is also Mother of: BT131214B & BT230115A.
