The Sire is a strong-bodied royal blue HMPK with a nice mouth-to-dorsal topline. The front rays of the dorsal fin are nicely long and directed forward. Good D-shaped caudal fin with pretty sharp corners. The Dame was bred by my friend Serkan GŁndogdu from Germany. She is a balanced HMPK with a smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline, nice shaped dorsal fin (ideally could be a bit broader), D-shaped caudal and a nicely parallel anal fin.  With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline, balanced finnage. The offspring (F1) will be (metallic) iridescent HMPKs with a chance of marbles popping up.
