Yellow HMPK

(Tanatong, Thailand)
Darkbody red HMPK
F1, BT061116A
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
Dame: Red HMPK

(Mareike Reimers, Germany)



The Sire is a darkbody red HMPK with a strong body, a D-shaped caudal fin and nice voluminous ventral fins. The dorsal ideally could have a bit more volume and the anal is slightly too long. The Dame is a cambodian-based intense red HMPK with minimal traces of iridescence, a nice bodyshape and balanced finnage.
With this cross I hope to fix the intense color with minimal iridescence as well as the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be HMPK. The offspring (F2) will be lightbody (cambodian-based) red.

The Dame is also mother of: BT030518 & BT210518A.
