(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)

The Sire is a darkbodied extended red combtail with a nice strong body and relatively short finnage as compared to his siblings. The reduction in webbing is already ~25% in the three unpaired fins with a varying raysplitting (primary and secundary branching). The Dame is a darkbodied red combtail plakat carrying extended red. It is quite surprising that she shows little iridescence considering her father was a steel blue fish. The shows a strong body but the "mouth-to-dorsal" topline ideally could be smoother. Her appearance is nicely balanced primarily caused by the parallel anal fin. Her caudal shows a good spread and nice primary branching. The doral has a nice shape but the base ideally could be a bit broader. She shows a moderate reduction in webbing which is nicely distributed in all three unpaired fins.
With this cross I hope to take my CTxPK project to the next level by getting some shortfinned fish back showing a good reduction in webbing in all three unpaired fins.
The offspring (F1) will be either darkbodied or cambodian based extended red with a chance of both long- as shortfinned fish popping up.
