Sire: Yellow HMPK

F1, BT100119A
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
Dame: Darkbody yellow HMPK
(Maria Örnberg, United Kingdom)



The Sire is a cambodian-based yellow HMPK with a nice intense color and minimal iridescence and black scaling. His form is really amazing and he became Best of Show Male at the National Betta Show in Solihull (UK) and the Holland Betta Show 2019 in Arcen  (NL). He has a very good D-shaped caudal fin, a nice trapezoid shaped anal vin and a voluminous dordal with nice, long front rays which are directed forward during flaring. The ventrals have a good length and volume. The Dame is a darkbody yellow HMPK and was a kind gift of my friend Maria Örnberg from the United Kingdom. The same shows minimal traces of iridescence, a good bodyshape and balanced finnage. Ideally the base of the dorsal fin could be a bit broader.
With this cross I hope to fix the intense color, the strong bodies, the smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be dark- and lightbody yellow HMPK.
