The Sire is a black lace based HMPK which was bred by Iven Bettas in Singapore. He shows a great color with only minimal iridescence and a bit of underlying red. Finnage is nicely balanced and the topline ideally can be a bit smoother. The Dame is a strong bodied steel blue based black lace with a very nice broad dorsal. The anal fin is nicely parallel and the ventrals are of good length and volume.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be darkbody iridescent with a chance of black lace and red wash to pop-up.

The Sire is also Father of: BT2301015A.
