The Sire is darkbody yellow HMPK with a nicely shaped body and balanced finnage. The caudal has a pretty good D-shape although the outer rays of the upper part could be slightly longer. The front of the dorsal is nicely directed forward and the anal fin and ventrals have a good shape and length. The dame is nemo/galaxy koi HMPK nice long bodyshape, smooth topline and balanced finnage. She has a very nice broad based dorsal.  
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and work towards a nemo/galaxy line with a better form & finnage.
The offspring (F1) most likely will start of as dark- and lightbodied blue/red with a good chance of marbling. Hopefully some already will develop some koi patterns along the way.
