The Sire is royal blue grizzle HMPK with a strong body and smooth topline and compact finnage. The caudal has a pretty good D-shape although the outer rays ideally could be a bit longer to create sharper corners. The dorsal has a good volume with the front rays directed forward. The anal fin has a nice trapezoid shape but ideally should be longer for an assymmetrical HMPK. The ventrals have a nice length and pretty good shape.  The dame is a turquoise HMPK from my own line with good bodyshape, color and finnage. Ideally the dorsal fin could be a bit more voluminous.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be darkbody non-metallic turquoise and royal blue red wash and marble to pop up. All the offspring will be carrier for lightbody (cambodian).

   
 
 
   

02/04/22: The pair spawned.
03/04/22: The fry hatched.
05/04/22: The fry entered the free-swimming stage and the Sire was removed.
05/06/22: The fry are now 9-weeks old! As expected the fry are darkbody non-metallic 
turquoise and royal blue based fish. There are also some marbles in the spawn.

   
 

 
   

04/11/22: Two HMPK brothers, one royal blue and one turquoise, at 30 weeks of age. Both fish are grizzle carriers.
