He's a very nice boy! Although some faults of his are his lack of sharp "D" caudal his anal needs to be a bit more shapely,weak ventrals, bumpy topline (not sure if from angle) and a broader dorsal base.

Yes. Explain the topline to me to? I dont see anything Wrong with the topline. Because of the Body structure of any short finned Betta Splendens (Only reffering to Traditional, HMPK, and Short Finned Halfmoon) a slightly more curved topline would not be considered a fault whereas it would be wit the longer fin tail types.
The faults I see with this male are. He should have sharper caudal edges, His anal should be more pointed, the edge to his anal should be cleaner and should slope more. His Caudal Branching should be more even, And also. Whats wrong with his ventrals? I dont see anything wrong with them

I think what victor meant was the ventrals are a bit scraggly instead of being beautiful and full :D

so the top line is basically the spine?

SO jealous. I don't even know what I would do if I seen this in a store. I'd be afraid of picking up the cup because I'd faint with happy. He's just... simply. GORGEOUS!
