The Sire is cambodian-based red (yellow-carrier) HMPK with some traces of black scaling and iridescence. He has a strong body (slight spoonhead) and balanced finnage. The caudal has a pretty good D-shape although the outer rays could be slightly longer. The front of the dorsal is nicely directed forward and the anal fin and ventrals have a good shape and length.
The Dame is a darkbody red (yellow-carrier) HMPK female with minimal traces of iridescence. She has a nice strong, long body and smooth topline. She has a good D-shaped caudal with nice long outer rays. Ideally the base of the dorsal fin could be a bit broader. The Dame is a full-sibling to the Sire.

With this cross I hope to obtain some darkbody yellow HMPKs to work further with. In addition, I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage. The offspring (F2) will be light- and darkbody red and yellow HMPK.
