(Hermanus Haryanto, IDN)
Darkbody red HM PK
(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Red/orange/black (Nemo) HMPK

(Titipark Rittirong, Thailand)
Darkbody red HMPK
F1, BT040717
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)



The Sire is shows an extraordinary colorcombination of red, orange black and few traces of iridescence. I an truely fascinated by this combination which was unthinkable 10 years ago. His body is well shaped with a smooth topline and balanced finnage. The caudal has a good 180 degree spread, long outer rays and sharp corners, the dorsal is has a nice volume with the front rays nicely directed forward, the anal fin has a good trapezoid shape with matching ventrals. The Dame is a darkbody red HMPK with an amazing D-shaped cadual, nice dorsal, parallel anal fin and mathing ventrals. The Dame is a full sister to the Sire.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be HMPK. Colorwise I expect both light- and darkbody based with red base initially but what will happen further when they mature will be a true surprise.


01/06/18: The pair spawned.
02/06/18: The fry hatched. Looks like a nice amount of fry!
04/06/18: The fry entered the free-swimming stage. Removed the male.
14/07/18: 6 weeks old. As expected all fry are lightbodied with a red base. Moved the fry to a bigger grow-out tank. Very curious to see what will happen in the coming weeks!


12/08/18: 10 weeks old. Exciting to see that the first fish start to marble. Curious to see what they will turn into.
