Yes. HMPKs are also much more stubborn fish and have less health risks including fin rot (not meaning they never get it or can't get it), tailbiting, their fins are much less likely to be getting caught in anything like a share edge or also as kaden said, they aren't weighed down. They are very nice and IMO much better to handle in smaller conditions when stocking, Halfmoons require much more space such as bigger barracks or containment.
Not only are Halfmoon Plakats more aggressive 'looking', but they are more aggressive when spawning. Since they don't have any fins holding them back, the males can also in most cases 'speed up' the spawning time. I've found that using less hiding spaces for them usually gave me a spawn in a maximum number of 3 days and if they don't spawn after the fourth day, I recondition.
