Steel blue HMPK
(Arie de Koning, NL)
Sire: Metallic steel blue lace
(Eugenio Fornasiero, Italy)
Dame: Metallic s
teel blue HMPK
(Pedro Cordero Pedrazo, Spain)



The Sire is a heterozygous metallic steel blue-based black lace HMPK which was bred by my friend Eugenio Fornasiero from Italy. He has a big-sized caudal with a good overall form. The Dame is heterozygous metallic steel blue HMPK which was bred by my friend Pedro Cordero Pedrazo (BettaXtrem) from Spain. She shows a nice long body with a smooth topline and balanced finnage (good D-shaped caudal, broad-based dorsal and parallel anal fin). Her mother was bred by Arie de Koning and is related to my own line.
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be either non-metalic, heterozygous metallic or homozygous metallic steel blue-based fish with a chance of black lace, marble and red wash to pop up.
