Form is so so. Fins should be straight and not curved on the edges.

I'd continue to look around.

If you are looking for a fish that fits the IBC standards here is an excellent example.....This male is a show winner and is as close to perfect as they get....I hope this helps.

I'm just learning the standard, but isn't the dorsal not supposed to overlap the body? Also I keep hearing people say "anal fin too long" about ones with one this long. This is acceptable length under the asymmetrical traditional standard, right?

Mostly I'm looking for something in a koi pattern, or to explore weather or not there is a true piebald condition in bettas, while still having quality fish so I can find homes for them. This boy was a good candidate for piebald because of the eye thing. (True piebaldism can affect eye color)

There is another male that is outstanding too....I'm just letting them mature and after convention will decide who to spawn....

Don't want to hijack this thread so I'll stop posting lol Just wanted to give you all a visual photo of an IBC bred HMPK and what the judges look for..

@ EvilVOG In asymmetrical plakats the anal is supposed to end in a point like that. :)

His dorsal is perfectly lined up to his caudal...And his anal is not too long he is completely symmetrical which is the most important thing....Also notice his strong straight ray branching.....Not curled like the AB fish..

This fish fits the IBC standard like a glove :o)
