F2 direction

Hey guys!

I am seeing the development of my F2
There is only one male and I think he is CT

what did you guys do to produce your CTPKs?

Here are my options
1. Do an F3
2. Backcross to Mom
3. Outcross to my DTPK x CTPK-geno cross
4. Cross to an aunt/uncle

Well, I can do all four but I just want your opinion.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello friends,
I wish all Betta fans, blog members and visitors Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year for you and your families.
At the moment I have no time for CTPK breeding. Iam so sad
about that, but I hope I have more time next year!

Best wishes

One of my last CTPK youngsters (Dino47)

Hi all,
he is one of a litlle group of my last spawn between a male of my
own stock and a female which I got from Joep van Esch, which
he took with success for one of his last CTPK spawns. Himself
he got the female from Michel Stokkelaar, which had imported
the female.

Here's what I have so far...

F1 male...unflared...very minute fringes at the dorsal and anal fins...caudal is like delta tail...nothing special

F1 female...much better than male...promising symmetry but not so nice branching

F1 female with Copper Marble DTPK
Both fish share the same mother (a copper dtpk)
I hope to fix the pk-genes first...produce ct-carrying plakats (and maybe dt plakats)
 then I will breed back to ctpk-carriers such as the F1 female

Happy Betta Keeping!

to grow. He is not so good like the died ctpk but OK.

Backt to the roots (Dino47)

Hi all,
I will present you one of the F1 generation. The father was from Jamie, a member
of this blog, too. The grandfather was a steelblue ctpk from my own spawn.
The mother was a female from my own spawn. I present this project in this blog,
view weeks ago. And how it looks I got steelblue back.
Ok he is not perfect, but I like his strong better and he have a lot of potencial I
think. What´s your opinion?

First time CTPK Class with 17 Betta

Hi all,
this night I came back from the Betta Show in Arcen, and it was a great
success for the european ctpk breeder. 17 ctpk males (breeder from
Germany, Italy, Tschech Republic, Netherlands) was registered. I
think it is the biggest ctpk class until yet of a eurpean betta show.

(Germany) internat. Betta Show Dortmund 2012

Hi all,
on the last weekend of September will start the 2th intern. Betta Freaks Show in Dortmund.
She will be a part of a european Diskus fish competition. The registered show betta will
judged by the Bettas4All Standard. There you will meet a lot of eurpean members of this
blog, and Iam sure with another ctpk class.


Informations about Betta shows worldwide

Hi friends,
until yet we have only informations about ctpk in this blog, but we
find more and more ctpk fans which visit this blog and Iam sure
in the future we get more special ctpk classes on shows around
the world. So I think it is a good idea to post little informations
about national or international betta shows from our blog members.
Visitors can send me informations about such events and the
authors can do this himself. How you find this idea?

Best wishes

Outcross Update (Dino47)

Hi all,
you know that I lost the most of my betta after waterchange. From the
outcross only 3 males and 2 females alived. Ok with this outcross I
made one or two steps backward, but I got better quality special in
the caudal fin. So I think that I can make in the F2 a step forward
