Darkbody Red HM PK

Darkbody Red

Sire: Yellow HM PK

(Ckk Ekkachai Khunthanet, Thailand)
Darkbody red HM PK
F1, BT221015B
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)



The Sire is lightbody yellow HMPK with a nice bodyshape (although body is slightly short). The caudal has a nice D-shape with a smooth appearance. The anal has a good trapazoid shape, the dorsal has a good volume with the front rays nicely directed forward. The ventrals have a good length and volume.The Dame is a darkbody extended red with a strong, long body, smooth topline and balanced finnage. She might be carrying orange as two of her siblings where orange.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be HMPK. Colorwise there likely will be dark- and lightbody reds with with a chance of orange (and maybe yellow?) to pop-up.

The Sire is also Father of: BT011016 & BT030117A.
