The Sire is a big, strong-bodied steel blue HMPK (topline could be smoother). The caudal has a good D-shape with long outer rays and is big in size. The anal has a pretty good trapezoid shape with a nice gradual slope. The dorsal has a good volume with a broad base. The front rays are nicely directed forward. The ventrals have a good length, volume and single tips. The Dame is royal blue HMPK and is a full sibling to the male. She has a long body with a smooth topline, a broad-based dorsal, a parallel anal fin and matching ventrals. The caudal is smooth in webbing and spreads almost 180 degrees.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F2) likely will be darkbody steel and royal blue HMPK with a chance of DTPK as of black lace and marble to pop up.

The Sire is also Father of: BT220616 & BT100916.
