Female pk and female vt looks the same.

Can anyone tell the difference between them?
Pictures can help too.

I don't have pictures, but it's quite obvious. PK and HM can often be confusing since some HM have shorter fins thus look like PK's. But VT has a rather long oval-round caudal while PK has short round ones (traditional PK). The modern HMPK is more obvious since their caudals form a "D" shape. Further VT have longer fins in general compared to PK.

Anal fin
Is the main thing you look for
Anal fin
Vt will have longer pointer
Pk will tend to have a flat looking one

Pelvic fin
Pk short and look even with the begging of the anal
Vt longer and not really balance with

Caudal fin
Pk more round and short
Vt look like a spade tail/round tail


What are you breeding
