Tail type?

Are there different types of double tail? My new guy Sharkie has shorter, rounder tails than the other double tails had. Is there such a thing as a plakat double tail?

There are different types of double tails, but I've never seen a plakat and I don't think yours is one. I know there's a sticky somewhere about all the different tail types and color distinctions etc.

Sure, there is a DTPK but he's definitely not one. He's just a young DTHM. Likely he has some short fin up in his ancestry but he's still a long-fin.

Here is a DTPK
