Steel blue lace
(Bettina Sperl, Germany)
Sire: Steel blue HM PK

F1, BT221015A
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
Steel blue lace HM PK
(Bettina Sperl, Germany)



The Sire is a big, strong-bodied steel blue HMPK (topline could be smoother). The caudal has a good D-shape with long outer rays and is big in size. The anal has a pretty good trapezoid shape with a nice gradual slope. The dorsal has a good volume with a broad base. The front rays are nicely directed forward. The ventrals have a good length, volume and single tips. The Dame was a kind gift of Betttina Sperl from Germany. As her grandfather was a melano PK, there is a good chance she is carrying this trait. She has a long body with a smooth topline, an impressive D-shaped caudal, a broad-based dorsal, a parallel anal fin and matching ventrals.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be darkbody steel blue HMPK with a chance of of black lace and marble to pop up.

The Sire is also Father of: BT280516 & BT100916.
