The Sire is darkbodied extended HMPK which was bred by my friend Michel Stokkelaar. I really love this male because of his strong body with a smooth mouth-to-dorsal topline. The finnage is nicely balanced with a good shape and volume. The dorsal is nicely broad at the base. His color is intense red with minimal traces of iridescence. His father is a full brother of the Sire of spawn BT090515B. The Dame is a darkbodied extended red HMPK a nice long body with a smooth topline and very nice balanced finnage (nice D-shaped caudal fin, broad-based dorsal and parallel anal fin). She has a nice intense red color with some traces of iridescence. The mothers of the Sire and Dame were full sisters from BT090514A.
With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be darkbody and cambodian based extended red HMPKs with a chance of DTPK to pop up.

   
 
 
   

22/10/15: The pair spawned smoothly. There are lots of eggs in the nest.
23/10/15: The fry hatched.
25/10/15: The fry entered the free-swimming stage. Removed the male.
04/12/15: The fry is now 6 weeks old and feeding well on tubifex. There are both dark- and lightbodied extended reds and I also have spotted some DTs. Interestingly one fry seems to be a yellow!

   
   
   

15/01/16: 12 weeks old. The fish I thought were yellow are actually orange, nice surpise.

   
   
   

30/01/16: Several males have been seperated. Unfortunately I spotted some bumpy toplines in some. Here an example of a young male with a good potential of 14 weeks old.

   
   

04/05/16: 28 weeks old.
