Perfect HM?

Can anyone show me a picture of what the ideal male hm form would be, and the ideal female hm form would be? Also same for hmpk's. Thanks, Lillian

I'm not a show-betta expert, but I think these would be good images to go by for the HM standard:

The female looks like a hmpk to me.
Heres some for the males, HM is A and HMPK is B

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1371221404 so I'm assuming this guy would be bad form? He's really pretty but that form doesn't really match

Good spotting. Yip his anal and dorsal are too long and caudal too short. He also has jagged edges on his fins and it looks like his first dorsal ray is too short. Caudal edges are very nice and sharp though and nice colours. He is young so his finnage probably has a bit of growing to still do

He's got coloring I really like, if I could find a betta with good form and that coloring I would be staring at him all day! One of my goals for breeding is to get females to have the nice build of an hmpk but still be an hm, i know that wouldn't really work though probably
