The Sire is a big, strong-bodied steel blue HMPK (topline could be smoother). The caudal has a good D-shape with long outer rays and is big in size. The anal has a pretty good trapezoid shape with a nice gradual slope. The dorsal has a good volume with a broad base. The front rays are nicely directed forward. The ventrals have a good length, volume and single tips. The Dame is a strongbodied steel blue HMPK female with a smooth topline. The has a great D-shaped caudal fin and nicely parallel anal fin. The dorsal ideally could be a bit fuller in volume. Both fish are related through the mother of the Sire as she also is the grandmother of the Dame. 
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be darkbody steel blue HMPK with a chance of of black lace and marble to pop up.

The Sire is also Father of: BT280516 & BT220616.
