Isn't that what the example shows?
yes the anal has to be a trapezium shape. The bottom part of the anal fin (don't know what to call it) has to be straight from front to back .... not curving outward like a HM's anal. And definitely not curving inward, making the anal look unbalanced.

I dont like how that is worded... It is supposed to slope inward. I have spoken to Certified Judges and they have said that it should slope... One Reason the first fish would beat the second in a show is because of the sloped anal

Not sure how it's like with the IBC but locally we choose straight bottom anal line. The ventrals must not be longer than the longest anal ray.

Both of your examples, IMO, have straight bottom anal line. ..... I could be wrong.

Anal fin shape. Isn't that one of the defining differences between the two classes of Plakat?

What are they: traditional Plakat and......?

They are suppose to be asymmetrical (long anal fin)
Symmetrical PK has equal fin lengths and long/wide dorsal (a DT carrier/geno)

Aokashi he is beautiful!

Mo beautiful fish! It is silly how they define perfect lol.

I prefer the look of the more straight edge, looks more clean. Though most fish are welcomed in my books! No real big fish lol.
