Copper/gold PK

(Hermanus Haryanto)

Blue marble HM plakat
(Ploybettas, Thailand)

Platinum white SD

(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Copper/gold HM PK
(Hermanus Haryanto, Indonesia)
Dame: Metallic blue SD
F1, BT200205
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)

The Sire is very vital copper/gold HM PK and is a brother from the 1st and 2nd placed HM plakats from the GBC show in Cologne 2005. This male has a good body shape, a strong HM caudal and an impressive broad dorsal. With this male I hope to improve the caudal finnage of my line. The dame is a metallic blue SD (showing some masking) which is carrying both plakat as marble genes.
The offspring (F1) probably will be short-finned and there is a chance some HM PKs will pop-up. The color of the fry can be metallic blue, platinum white, copper/gold maybe with some degree of marbling showing up as they get older. There is a chance some DTs pop-up.

The Dame is also mother of BT210505 and BT020705.
