The Sire is a red copper marble HMPK with a strong body, smooth topline and balanced finnage. The caudal has a good D-shape although his outer rays ideally could be a bit longer in order to create sharper corners. The dorsal has a good volume with the front rays directed forward. The anal fin has a nice trapezoid shape and the ventral fins have a nice length, volume and shape. The dame is a galaxy koi HMPK from unknown descent. The has a very nice torpedo-shaped body, color and finnage.
The background of both parents is unknown. Both were imported from Indonesia by Living Colors Waterwold, the Hague (NL).

With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be likely be multicolored with a big change of galaxy koi marbles to pop up.
