Salamander HM PK
(Sebastian Säck, Germany)
(Betta Territory, NL)
Metallic steel blue HM PK
(Betta Territory, NL)
 Red HM
(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Blue/red HM PK
F1, BT290412A
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
Dame: Blue marble
F1, BT260512
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)

The Sire is a blue/red HMPK with a strong body and smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline. His finnage is nicely compact and balanced with a nice D-shaped caudal, broad-based dorsal and parallel anal fin. The Dame also has a strong body, smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline and balanced finnage. Sire and Dame are half-siblings as they have the same mother.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage. T
he offspring (F1) will most likely be both light- and darkbodied HMPKs with a varying distribution of red and blue. Some fry might loose the red due to the red-loss trait or marble.

The Sire is also Father of: BT141212
