The Sire is steel blue HMPK which with a nice D-shaped caudal fin and broad-based dorsal (ideally the mouth-to-dorsal topline could be a bit smoother). The Dame is balanced royal blue HMPK which was bred by my friend Matthias Polzin from Germany.
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be (metallic) steel blue and royal blue fish with a chance of marble and red wash to pop up.
