Critique this fella

He is being offered up as a breeding quality giant HMPK. Feel free to point out anything at all so that I can learn from this photo. THanks!

I think he is stunning. I would snatch him up if I had the tank space.

I couldn't figure out how to edit a post on this forum so I had to add on here. I just wanted to add that he is 3.5 months old.

i'm just learning about the standards but he looks pretty good. His anal fin could be a little bit more pointed, and he could use some more caudual, but his fins line up pretty good otherwise.

Well his dorsal fin looks a bit out of line from his caudal. The caudal fin looks to be longer at the top of it and the lower part of it should be more full. The anal fin looks fine to me. The standards say that it can either be a rounded anal or a pointed anal. In his case, he's got a rounded anal. I don't know if it's me, but one of his ventrals look smaller. I think it's how the picture was taken though.

He has very few flaws and IMO great breeding quality. Most of the things are minor flaws.

I think the saturation in that pic was edited, so his coloration may not be as vivid when you get him. (Just an observation, I edit lots of pics)

Quality for giants are the same as regulars. So you want the front ray of his dorsal to be long and leaning forward. And you want the dorsal to be the same height as the caudal. His caudal has unequal ray branching and the webbing IMO is too narrow. You want the caudal to be a half circle - his looks a bit ...just doesn't look right. The edges of his caudal should be pointy - his is too round. You want an anal that leans forward as well. All rays should be firm and straight.

The above is an extreme judgement of show bettas - as you requested, for learning.

That guy is IMO too traditional for my taste. You will have a hard time improving his form. If you plan to breed, look for another guy and get your money's worth.
