The Sire is a cambodian-based HMPK with a nice intense red color and minimal iridescence. The caudal has a nice D-shape, the front rays of the dorsal are nicely directed forward and the anal is nicely trapezoid-shaped. The ventrals have a volume and shape with nice single tips. The Dame is a cambodian-based red HMPK  female with a good red coverage on the body and minimal traces of iridescence. Ideally the base of the dorsal fin could be a bit broader with the first rays a bit longer.
With this cross I hope to fix the intense red color, the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F2) will be cambodian-based red HMPK.
