Sire: Royal blue
F1, BT230410
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
Dame: Metallic blue/red HM PK
(Donny Adriaens, Belgium)

The Sire is a strong-bodied royal blue HM PK with a nice broad dorsal. His anal is nicely parallel. The caudal has a nice 180 degree spread but the corners of the caudal ideally should be sharper. The Dame is metallic blue HM PK bred by my friend Donny Adriaens from Belgium. Her caudal shows a great shape and nicely compensates that of the male. The pedigree of both fish does show some overlap.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, broad dorsals and quality finnage in my iridescent HM PK line.
The offspring (F1) will be metallic blue HM PKs which a chance of melano blacks popping up.

The Sire is also Father of BT170111.
