I don't think it is HM OR HMPK. This is just a regular male PK with wild-type colouring

That's a Male HMPK from the looks of it. If it flares, it's a male.

There is no HM in that fellow. There isnt a 180 degree spread. I agree with bahamut, male PK with wild-type coloring. :)

Yep I agree that it is a wild-type male PK. Its anal fin is very sharply pointed, and beard a little too full for me to think female. I also think the overall body shape is a lot more male looking than female.

I would say it is most definitely a male, considering he doesn't have a round belly, or a visible ovipositer, but the most obvious thing to me on this fish is that his anal fin comes to a very defined point. Plus the behavior suggests a male, not that female can never be nasty to other girls! His tail is also quite large if it was a female. Very nice, and he does look wild!

Male PK - wild type is my vote.
I noticed the longer ventral fins and thought that meant male. The females I have all have cute tiny little ventral fins!
