Betta Territory - 20th Anniversary Spawn
Copper/red Fancy HMPK

(Navapon Betta, Thailand)
Dame: Copper/red Fancy HMPK

(Navapon Betta, Thailand)



The Sire and Dame are both copper fancy HMPK with good bodyshape and overall balance. Their caudals have a nice D-shape, the dorsals hav a good volume and are nicely directed forward at the front. The anals are nicely trapezoid-shaped. The ventrals have nice single tips but ideally could be a bit more voluminous.

With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) most likely will be copper/red fancy although there likely iwll be a variation in color due to the marble influence.


11/03/23: The pair spawned. This is a special day as today it has been 20 years ago since the first pair spawned in my Betta Territory, for a flashback, click here: BT110303.
13/03/23: The fry hatched.
15/03/22: The fry entered the free-swimming stage and the Sire was removed.
09/04/23: The fry are now 4-weeks old. So far all fry seem to be darkbody with some traces of red and copper iridescence on the body and finnage.


05/05/23: The fry are now 8-weeks old. Among the fry there is a variationi the amount of red and the coverage of the copper iridescent layer. Some fry have started to marble and lost their black scaling.
