It kinda makes sense though. They were bred to have longer and prettier fins. They don't need them. Maybe its like running in a long pouffe wedding dress all the time. wouldn't you just want to rip some of it off so you can move better?

I think so as well. They are always swimming around with so much baggage and then HMPK's or PK's are enjoying their fins because they are just as fast as the females. This is why i think they are more aggressive than HMs and other long finned bettas.

True, though that is why many of us are trying to perfect them by NOT breeding Rosetails because that is just one deformity that they have to really be strong enough to hold.

Okay guys! I HAVE THE GIRLS! They were almost going to freeze if I hadnt stayed and waited for the late greyhound >.> but they made it okay! I'm about to let the least aggressive out first. My tankwater is cloudy, so I put in some seeded filter media like I was going to anyhow and added some Prime along with my normal water conditioner.

GIRLS ARE SOOOO TINY!
