(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)



The Sire is a heterozygous metallic steel blue-based black lace HMPK which was bred by my friend Eugenio Fornasiero from Italy. He has a big-sized caudal with a good overall form. The Dame is balanced steel blue HMPK from my own line.
With this outcross I hope to fix the strong bodies, smooth topline and balanced finnage.
The offspring (F1) likely will be (metallic) steel blue-based fish with a chance of black lace, marble and red wash to pop up.
