As have I! I think that to me HMPKs have really shown their real sides. I still can't say that CT isn't my favorite tail type, but for real show quality fish I have to say that HMPKs are my favorite.

Depends. Traditional plakat has longer ventral fins and a longer body. Rays and fin spread don't really matter. Ideally a traditional PK has 180 degree spread with round edges, longer body, longer ventral fins. Most of the time they have two rays but I've seen up to 8 before.

These are traditional PKs:

Update

Update 3/4/12
The fry are now 6 days old and all but two are free swimming. They are pretty hard to catch on camera at these first few weeks as any breeder with an average quality camera knows the annoyance of trying to get them.

I did manage to get a video of one of the fry. Very tiny white speck will swim upward away from the camera:

I might be updating every week with more interesting updates until they get bigger for the camera and I can actually find them.

Well something really interesting happened while the male was putting them back into the nest the other day. (He is still in the nest) Will explain later... So I noticed the male was picking them up and spitting them into the nest and then when I looked closer I saw him flaring. At first I thought he was fixing his beard because he had a mouth full of the fry, but no...he was FLARING at the fry. Probably the weirdest thing I have ever seen when breeding. He is the first male to ever flare at the fry. I think it was because they kept falling. Everytime they would fall out again after he puts them in the nest, he literally watches them and when they start to fall again he flares.

It was the most interesting thing I have ever seen with fry this age still leaving the father with them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On another update:

I have decided to try the Father with Fry method. Many reports have results of very healthy fry, being able to leave the fry in with the siblings longer because of the "alpha" fish being in there, there is no need to fight for territory; less chance of egg eaters, and many with less aggression with the siblings. Some success stories say that they can have them with each other for a bit longer than 2.5 months.

I have wanted to try this for a while. Any suggestions? or Opinions?

I actually heard this was a good method as well! I think Victoria from www.bettysplendens.com wrote an article on it. Was very tempted to try it myself! Managed to keep GoldenEye in with his fry for about 4 days after they started free-swimming. By then he still wouldnt eat and I didnt want him to die so I took him out lol. Would love to try that though!
