Sire: Metallic blue marble HM PK

(Niwit Liwiwattanagoon, Thailand)

Dame: Copper dragon PK
F2, BT17107A
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)
   
 
 
   

The Sire is a metallic blue full mask with some marble features. The body has a strong, full appearance. The caudal has a good spread, the anal has a quite parallel appearance. The dorsal ideally could be fuller. The Dame is a copper dragon with a nice thick metallic scaling (with some underlying red wash). Her finnage has a nice potential and hopefully she will pass on the thick metallic layer to the offspring.
The offspring (F1) will be HM PK. The colors will probably range from metallic blue to copper. Some might show some red wash and might show some marbling.
