(Serkan Gündogdu, Germany)

(Betta Territory, NL)
Sire: Salamander HM PK

(Sebastian Säck, Germany)
F1, BT290811
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)

The Sire is a salamander HMPK which was a gift of Sebastian Säck from Germany. He shows a very nice strong body, strong peduncle and good mouth-to-dorsal topline. His caudal fin has a good 180 degree spread but  ideally the corners could be bit sharper. The anal fin is nicely parallel to the body and the although the dorsal has a nice shape, the base could be broader. The Dame is a strong-bodied cambodian-based red HMPK from my own line with a balanced appearance and a nicely broad-based dorsal fin.
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies and overall balance.
The offspring (F1) will be blue/red HMPKs of which some might show a small with rim in the unpaired fins.

The Dame is also mother of: BT260512.
