Dame: Platinum white PK
F1, BT210505
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
   
 
 
   

The sire is a metallic marble 4-ray HM plakat. This plakat is showing an ithickest metallic layer I have ever seen. The dame is a allmost completely clean platinum white (4-ray) PK female. This outcross is an experiment and the offspring (F1) will be a total surprise. I hope the youngsters will show some of the thick iridescence of their father.

The Dame is also mother of BT170905A.
