The Sire and Dame are siblings from a spawn which was very homogenous both color as finnage wise. The pair was selected because of their strong bodies and promising finnage.
The goal of this cross is mainly to isolate fish with strong bodies & quality finnage as well as a solid (metallic) iridescent color. The offspring (F2 ) will be HM PK.

The Sire became 1st placed in the  Asymmetrical HM PK male class - Unicolor (iridescent) at the 1st Betta Freaks Show in Frechen, Germany. The Dame became 2nd placed in the HMPK female class - All Colors.
