Question HMPK Form? [Feedback needed]

Found this guy online this morning, and I'm in love. Considering snatching him up, and looking for a HMPK girl to spawn rather than my HMs... From looking at the standards listed here;
http://bettaterritory.nl/BT-Bettas4allStandard.htm it looks like he's an 'asymmetrical' HMPK. My eye is still new, so even though he seems to have nice finnage to me, I was wondering what other breeders might think?

Photos and fish not under my ownership.

Yes he's asymmetrical. Body and anal fin could be a bit better but overall he's not too bad.

Should the anal fin be shorter? Sharper? Trying to find a female to fill in his faults.

The female should be well balanced with a shorter anal fin.

That's what I figured. Just curious, I saw this pretty girl on another thread-- Her anal appears shorter, but I'm not entirely sure how good a cadual or overall spread she has? I'm just making wishful matches, but I think her and him would have some flashy fry!

Sorry for all the questions, but getting to see the good and bad traits is helping me a ton. <3

Her branching is ok but again the anal is the problem. However, I feel she matches your boy nicely.

I'm seriously considering snagging them. Although the anal on these fry will be long, that could be fixed over a few generations of careful pairings correct?

Could be an interesting challenge.

ideal HMPK female. Notice the strong branching on her cadual and 180 degree spread...

Ideally you want symmetry over everything. The girl PitGurl posted is ideal.

Opps I forgot to say that photo was for the ideal cadual. Mr Vampire is right though symmetry over all is ideal .
