Oh thank you very much. I would think it would make it difficult to swim etc. Although i see pics sometimes with the fin corner bent over, down on the body.

I dont know if that is/looks the same or not.

Well only on rare instances it will break off.
I just got a OHM today who's branch is broken. I knew this when I bought him from his breeder but I couldn't pass up such an outstanding fish.
The rays will bend when they are weak and heavy so genetics take an important part, you need to look for fish from lines with strong branching.
Here's my fish's tail... pic was taken by his breeder Martinismommy (the mother or grandmother of all my fish)!

O.O oh i love it. I was looking at two similar to him last night. Im having such a difficult time picking just one. The one i want, I just wouldnt buy until I know I wont harm it.

That sounds awkward, but it sold for 150. I believe i saw it for sale from abroad first, and then here about 2 mos later. He was a mustard gas, green body, gold other. Im not sure why, but he stopped me cold. I couldnt take my eyes off him.

He is why im getting ready now, so next time i see the perfect one, ill be ready.

Still doesnt sound very good when i think about it ... Thank you very much for the pic. Its nice you have someone you trust to buy from, and know the history. Very cool.

Yup Like Shaina's fishy yours may tail-bite Even my heavy tailed ancient veiltail does it.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
