The Sire is a strong-bodied HMPK with a very interesting colorpattern and contrast. He has a nice broad-based dorsal with pretty good long front rays. The anal fin has a good length and form and the ventrals have a good shape and length. The caudal has a good size but the corners are too rounded (ideally the outer rays should be longer). The Dame is a nemo/galacy koi HMPK which was imported from Indonesia. The dame has a smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline with nicely balanced finnage and a nice colorpattern. 
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be HMPK in a wide variety of colors. I hope to see some candy/nemo koi patterns back.

The Sire is also father of: BT110120B.
