(Arie de Koning, NL)
Darkbody Red HMPK
(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Red HMPK

(Hermanus Haryanto, Indonesia)
Dame: Darkbody red HMPK

F1, BT020916
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)



The Sire is cambodian-based extended red HMPK with a nice intense red color and minimal iridescence. The Sire was a kind gift of Hermanus Haryanto from Indonesia. He has a big and strong body with a big sized caudal. which reaches a 180 degree spread and has a smooth appearance (the corners ideally could be sharper). The front of the dorsal fin is nicely directed forward. The anal fin is in good proportion to the rest of the finnage and the ventral fins have a single tips with a good volume. The Dame is a darkbody extended red with nice long body, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
With this cross I hope to fix the intense red color with minimal iridescence, strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be HMPK. Colorwise there likely will be dark- and lightbody reds.
