The Sire is a steel blue HMPK with a strong body and smooth topline. The caudal has a nice D-shape with long outer rays, the anal has a good trapezoid shape with a nice gradual slope. The dorsal is uniform rounded and ideally could have a bit more volume with a broader base. The ventrals have a nice length, volume and single tips. The Dame is steel blue HMPK with a nice long body with a smooth topline. She is a full sister of the male. She has a pretty good D-shaped caudal fin, a broad-based dorsal and parallel anal fin. With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage. The offspring (F2) likely will be darkbody steel with a chance of black lace and marble to pop up.
