The Sire is a steel blue HMPK. His caudal has a pretty good D-shape but overall the form still needs a lot of work (especially the anal and dorsal finnage). The Dame a strongbodied steel blue black lace HMPK female with a smooth topline and balanced finnage. The caudal is nicely D-shaped, the dorsal has a nice broad base (front rays bit short) and the anal is nicely parallel to the body. The Sire and Dame are half-siblings as they have the same father.  
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be steel and royal blue HMPK with a chance of black lace and marble to pop up.
