Sire: Grey copper mask HM PK
"Silver"

Dame: Royal blue HM PK
F1, BT270906B
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
   
 
 
   

The Sire great balanced grey/silver copper mask HM PK which became 1st placed and reserve Best of Show at the 8th EHBBC show in Hannover, Germany. I'm very curious whether this color will be inherited. The color could be caused by the presence of opaque and/or blonde genes. The female is royal blue HM PK with some mask features and is a F1 from outcrossing of my line to a Dennis Tan male.
The offspring (F1) will be HM PK with a chance of getting DT PKs. The colors are probably metallic steel blue and (grey?) copper/gold with some chance of some
light bodied fish or marbles popping up. 

The Sire is also father of: BT100207, BT080307 & BT170307.
