HMPK breed

So i have 2 beautiful males that i want to breed, theyre HMPK.

my stupid question is, if there a difference between breeding a HMPK female and just a regular HM?

Female HMPKs generally have broader, more streamline bodies than female HMs.

One will have a bit shorter fins, especially the anal - which will be HMPK, the other will have a bit longer, the HM.

If you are wanting HMPK fry then you will want to stick with HMPK females, as long fins are more dominant than the short fins, so mixing a HMPK + HM you will result with more longer fins.. usually not fully HM big, but in between HM and HMPK, which normally isn't desirable. You may end up with a few HMPKs out of the bunch.

So it does matter depending upon your goal.
