He looks to me like a blue cambodian with red wash. Looks like he may also have the marble gene but unless you can compare before and after, it's hard to tell. I am not up on PK show standards, so that's about all I can say. He looks cute though :P

This is quite a difficult fish to judge colour wise. He's closest to cambodian. But with a lot of dirty marks. The red wash is pretty severe. His anal fin isn't the right shape for a traditional. His caudal fin is ok for a traditional. To be brutally honest I think it would take a heck of a lot of work for many generations to improve colour and finnage to reach show standards using this fish. It might be fun to experiment with him. But if spawning space was at a premium I'd be putting him right at the back of the spawning queue. Sorry. :)
