The Sire is a cambodian based extended red which was bred by my friend Eugenio Fornasiero from Italy. He popped up from a spawn between a female from Eugenio (her grand-grand-grand mother was a red DTPK descending from my own line: BT030112) and an import male. The sire is a big fish with a strong body, beautiful topline, and very balanced finnage with a great form. The Sire was awarded with the 3rd place in the non-iridescent asymmetrical HMPK class at the Holland Betta Show 2014. The Dame is a strong bodied darkbodied red HMPK with a nice broad dorsal base and moderate branching in the finnage.
With this cross I hope to fix the intense red color without hardly any traces of iridescence, the strong bodies, smooth topline and the balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) will be both dark- and lightbodied extended red HMPKs.

The Sire is also Mother of: BT141214.
