Fantastic Indjo. Exactly what I am looking for. I look at it like this: I will be paying roughly the same amount for whatever I get. I want great color but don't want to sacrifice conformation to get it. I will keep looking...armed with my new knowledge.

I agree with the person who said the color looks over-saturated. The picture has been edited, you can tell by the blue saturation splotches in the background. I edit photos every single day for my job, I'm trained to look for things like this. xD anyone who feels the need to "enhance" their fish in PhotoShop IMHO is not an honest person, I'd steer clear of the breeder altogether as you don't know what you're really getting.

Rounding of the caudual is acceptable in the traditional hmpk class i believe, the show hmpk is the hard perfect half-circle edge on it. Or at least that's how it was explained to me. That they are two different asymmetrical show classes.

(From Joep of BettaTerritory, Netherlands)

A. Traditional Plakat
B. Asymmetrical HMPK
C. Symmetrical HMPK


Examples of Traditional Plakat:

(A) was bred by Rung Keereelang (Thailand), (B) and (C) were bred by Joep van Esch (The Netherlands)
Please note that this fish is an example and still exhibits points requiring improvement.


Examples of Asymmetrical HMPK:

(A) was bred by Rung Keereelang (Thailand), (B) and (C) were bred by Joep van Esch (The Netherlands)
Please note that this fish is an example and still exhibits points requiring improvement.


Examples of Symmetrical HMPK:

(A) Breeder unknown, (B) was bred by Jit Sin (Malaysia) and (C) was bred by Morris Gabriel (Singapore)
Please note that these fish are examples and still exhibit points requiring improvement.



You can get away with rounder edges if you are showing for Traditional HMPK, but not Asymmetrical/Symmetrical HMPK.

Wow, thank you KJ! I've wondered about the differences of the plakats and since I'm a visual learner this is wonderful!

Not that it's critical knowledge to me since I neither breed nor show bettas, but I do love learning what makes one fish closer to the standard than another.

Cool

The Asymmetrical look more natural to me. the Symmetrical look somehow deformed...

There is not right or wrong in opinion, but I think they look nice because they look like DTs wi one caudal because of the wide dorsal and wide anal.

I did find, during my looking around, that the fish was not a bad speciman of the traditional plakat. He would need his anal fin improved upon as well as his branching/webbing in the caudal. I think that would be a tall order for a newbie to find a female to improve those!
