Sire: Royal blue HM PK

(Stingrays, Singapore)

Dame: Copper/gold PK
F1, BT210505
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
   
 
 
   

The sire is a royal blue (probably non-metallic) 4-ray HM plakat showing a great overall shape; strong HM caudal, broad full dorsal and nicely shaped anal finnage. The dame is a copper/gold  (4-ray) PK female.
The offspring (F1) will be HM PK with a chance of getting DT PKs. The color will be a surprise as the background of the male is unknown to me. they probably will be metallic blues with maybe some
light bodied fish or marbles popping up. 

The Dame is also mother of BT170905B and BT060406&BT080606
