The Sire is a heterozygous metallic steel blue HMPK with a strong body and balanced finnage. He has a nice D-shaped caudal, a broad based dorsal with the front nicely directed forward, an anal fin with a good shape and length and matching ventrals. The dame is a heterozygout metallic steel blue HMPK with a nice bodyshape, smooth topline and balanced finnage. She is a full sister to the male. Besides being heterozygous for the metallic trait, both fish are also carrier of the cambodian trait. There also is a chance they are carrying melano as their mother was a proven melano carrier.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F2) will be light- and darkbodied, non-metallic, heterozygous metallic and homozygous metallic, steel blue based HMPK with a chance of melano black, black lace, red wash and marble to pop up.
