The Sire is steel blue HMPK which with a nice D-shaped caudal fin and broad-based dorsal. The Dame is steel blue HMPK with a strong body and balanced finnage. Sire and Dame are half-siblings as they share the same mother.
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be steel blue and royal blue fish with a chance of black lace, black melano and/or marble to pop up.
