My Petsmart which I only have one by me never has any HMPK or PK. That's it I have to leave Chicago. LOL! :D I really LOVE your little guy. So very handsome! :)

Wow, he's beautiful! We get a lot of really nice plakats at my petsmart. Last time i found a really nice black and green DTHM. It took every ounce of self control to leave him there!
As far as your guy's form goes, I actually really like his topline - no bumps that I can see. His caudal edges should be sharper, and his anal could use some work, but other than that he's very lovely!

thanks ^____^

@Laki - I'm not going to name him, hahah. he's already got a new owner and a 5gal waiting :D

will be united with his lovely future home in one month ^_^

i bought him because I couldnt bear the thought of a terrible betta newbie to put him in a cold, tiny bowl...

he was too lovely for that

I saw there was a little dip where the first ray of the dorsal is and near the head. I guess it's not really that noticeable haha

Great find.

IMO he has very few flaws. As others said, caudal could be more pointy. But he has good rays - though they are not equal.
Anal should be rounded like that and the bottom line of anal looks straight enough.
Dorsal has nice front ray - though it could be a bit longer.
Ventrals could be more smooth/straight and a bit wider ( but that is wide enough).
His top line looks OK to me. Perhaps his scales could be better.

Congrats on your find
