Orange dalmatian
(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Red/orange/black (Nemo) HMPK

(Titipark Rittirong, Thailand)
Dame: Yellow HMPK

F2, BT061117B
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)



The Sire is shows an extraordinary colorcombination of red, orange black and few traces of iridescence. I an truely fascinated by this combination which was unthinkable 10 years ago. His body is well shaped with a smooth topline and balanced finnage. The caudal has a good 180 degree spread, long outer rays and sharp corners, the dorsal is has a nice volume with the front rays nicely directed forward, the anal fin has a good trapezoid shape with matching ventrals. The Dame is a cambodian-based yellow HMPK which descents from my dalmatian spawns. The has a nice bodyshape and balanced finnage. Her dorsal got damaged in the grow-out tank.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be HMPK. Colorwise I expect both light- and darkbody based with red base initially but what will happen further when they mature will be a true surprise.


21/05/18: The pair spawned.
22/05/18: The fry hatched. Looks like a nice amount of fry!
24/05/18: The fry entered the free-swimming stage. Removed the male.
14/07/18: 8 weeks old. As expected all fry are lightbodied with a red base. Moved the fry to a bigger grow-out tank. Very curious to see what will happen in the coming weeks!


25/08/18: 14 weeks old. Some fish are getting more iridescence and a few fry are turning into cellos.


20/09/18: 17 weeks old.
