The Sire is a royal blue HMPK with a nice asymmetrical HMPK shape. He has a big-sized caudal and a broad-based dorsal. The dame is a steel blue HMPK with a good bodyshape, a smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline with nicely balanced finnage. 
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be royal blue and steel blue based HMPK with a chance of black lace, melano black, red wash and/or marble to pop up.

The Dame is also mother of: BT200519A, BT270819C and BT110120A.

For a few generations you were a trait in disguise,
But after giving royal blue x steel a go,
A nice surprise!
