The Sire is cambodian-based metallic orange colored fish which I found in a local pet store. He shows a nice intense orange color and a slight butterfly rim in the caudal. Finnage-wise he need some work as the caudal is a bit in between VT and delta. The Dame is a darkbody yellow, smooth topline and balanced finnage. She is a full sibling to the male.
With this cross I hope to fix the intense color with minimal iridescence as well as the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be VT. The offspring (F1) likely will be dark-, lightbody red, orange and/or yellow with a chance of dalmatians to pop up.
