The Sire is metallic steel blue melano HMPK with a good 180 degree spread, volumnous dorsal and nice shaped anal fin. In general, the finnage has a good potential but ideally could be a bit smoother. The Dame is a royal blue with a strong body and smooth topline. She has a nice D-shaped caudal fin with nicely long outer rays and sharp corners. She has a broad-based dorsal with nicely long rays at the front which are nicely directed forward. The anal fin is nicely parallel and the ventrals are of good length and volume.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) can be both light- and darkbodied steel blue or royal blue. 

The Dame is also Mother of: BT261014A & BT230115A.
