Critique this fella#2

He has a rounded traditional plakat tail and the dorsal doesn't overlap the caudal much but other than that what do you see?

The anal fin is to long, and the dorsal fin is to big and looks odd/deformed to me.

The only thing I can see is it seems like he's a bit long bodied...his dorsal doesn't really flow into his caudal but I thought the topline was decent, anal fin was a good shape, he has forward pointing rays on the dorsal and they seem to be long enough and the dragon scales seem uniform and tight looking-his dragon scaling is some of the best I have found albiet I haven't been looking long, lol.
Anything that would scream out "keep him out of the gene pool!"?

I would try to find a dragon female with better/more ray branching to improve the tail. Perhaps a shorter bodied more stout female?

It's not that he is too long bodied it is more that he is narrow at the base of his tail...He needs to be thicker....If I were to breed this male it would be to a traditional PK female....He is not a good HMPK...

His caudal is also unbalanced, it's longer on the top than the bottom. I feel like his dorsal should also open more like a fan, it's sort of awkward looking.

It may take generations to improve his general form.
