Awesome 6-Color Fancy OHMPK

This time, let me share with you a show plakat that not only has good balance and form&finnage, but also has excellent colors, contrast and marbling. I'm told from the person whom I bought this male from that it is from an Indonesian breeder (no idea who he is though). Planning to use him to cross to my young fancy females soon. Wish me luck. :)

Male Gold HMPKs

Here are some males from a recent batch of gold plakats. Generally the intensity is not as good as the intense gold batches, but are still quality golds nevertheless. To me, it is caused by most of them having more opaque. I'm quite satisfied with the color for this batch as most of them are clean golds, with pretty even color. BTW, all of these are sold.

Intense Gold DTHMPKs

Sharing some of the males from one of my recent gold plakat batches. For this spawn, the gold color is the best that I've achieved, and personally, the most intense gold that I've ever seen on show bettas. The metallic spread also has seen further improvement here, with almost all having very good metallic spread including the pectorals. Hope to continue improving on my gold DTPKs, especially on the DT form & finnage. Wish me luck!

Best Gold HM females I've produced so far

Sharing two sibling HM females from a not-so-recent "recent" batch. At the MAHA Competition end of last November, Female 1 won 1st placing in the Female HM Unicolor Class and 2nd place overall in the Female Division. Sorry , I did not manage to take photo of her with prime finnage condition. I delayed till Christmas for the photoshoot and did not take water change seriously. Furthermore, I accidentally did some minor damage to her anal before the photoshoot when scooping her out using my bare hand - yes, very seldom do I use the krabuey or net to move my bettas... :( But seriously, normally for me, the bare-hands method offers the lowest probability of causing fin damage - however, sadly this time I blundered...

Photo of Female 2 was taken about a week ago. Both are DT-genos, but Female 2 looks a good prospect to boost up the dorsals of future DTs.

Two Fancy Female Breeders

I managed to get two good fancy female breeders, one from a Thai breeder and another from a Malaysian breeder. Eventho they are not 6-color fancies, they are the best I could find to cross with my males for my 6-color fancy project. One thing tho, due to time and space constraint, I had to sell off one of the females as I could not accomodate too many spawns...

The females:

6 Color Fancy

Allow me to introduce a new purchase from a Thai breeder. This is the 6 color fancy with the type of color combination I'm talking about in the previous post. Here we also see the dual tone yellow-orange fins with red "armageddon"/"dalmation" speckling on top. Having parents of this color is no guarantee that you will get offsprings of the similar color. My task is made more challenging as it was difficult to get my hands on good female breeders with similar color combination.

The male is a real stunner. Besides the pretty decent finnage, as you can see it has 6 colors : Blue (turquoise), white, yellow, orange, red, and black. Some may even say it has a 7th color, green, splashed on the dorsal and caudal.

Perhaps at the end of the day, I could start producing fancies with this coloration, with even better marbling on the body compared to this male. Wish me luck in this fancy project.
