Salamander HM PK
(Sebastian Säck, Germany)
(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Blue/red HM PK
F1, BT290412A
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
Dame: Blue/red
F1, BT290412A
(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 is a full sister to the Sire showing the te same characteristics.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage. T
he offspring (F2) will most likely be both light- and darkbodied HMPKs with a varying distribution of red and blue. 

The Sire is also Father of: BT041212.
The Dame is also mother of: BT150213A.
