The Sire is a blue marble HMPK which popped up from the HM line of Jolanda Schär and was spawned before by Nicklate, who kindly gave him to me. His strongest points are his size (without any doubt one of the biggest fish I ever had in my fishroom, with the exceptions of giants), the strong body + peduncle and the smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline. Points of attention are the finnage: Caudal outer rays could be longer, caudal corners sharper and the dorsal ideally could be a bit broader. The Dame is an F2 from my own line with a strong body, smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline, balanced balanced overall appearance and nice D-shaped caudal!
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies and overall balance.
The offspring (F1) will most likely be blue/red HMPKs with a chance of marbles popping up. Some fry might loose some red due to the red-loss trait.
