-Symmetrical is whats called a Short-tailed HM, Still must have that round standard shape but in a shorter tail


TRADITIONAL PK:


AYSEMMETRICAL PK:(Not my fish just a example)

I seem to have a hard time distinguishing between a traditional & asymmetric PK.

Going to go try to take a good side-profile of my plakat and have someone on this thread tell me what mine is...

I think asymmetrical is the correct classification for mine. His caudal fin does not come to a point like the traditional PKs.

So I am still pretty new to all the terminology...what counts as 'butterfly' and what counts as 'salamander' PKs?

IMO I think they are both the same, well kind of. I think Salamanders blends in more with Lavender w/ white band and Butterfly could be any color with white band. Like I said I could be wrong I'm just giving you what I know. Maybe Mo knows be works with Salamanders

You can show any fish, but it will not class unless there are enough entries, otherwise they class in under a different fish and it does not show well. They always base the different classes on the entries at the show.

I noticed the first three examples of traditional PK provided by Junglist appear, to my admittedly poor eyesight, to have 2-ray branching. The asymmetrical PK and symmetrical PK obviously have 4-ray. Is this a consideration?

The example provided above is 4-ray and is labeled traditional.

(I really need to join IBC and get a rulebook.)
