Mine doesn't seem to have any trouble getting around, but I would imagine that the super EE's would have some trouble lugging all that finnage around.

Hiccup doesn't. he gets around great. but, i think with extra finnage, any betta would be unhappy.

Hey there,

Berry is not as active as he used to be and his fins do appear to weigh him down a bit but he has the advantage that he is a HM plakat so the rest of his finnage does not add to his weight load.

My other EE is only young and a super delta, he would look amazing with ears the same size as Berry's but it probably would make swimming a bit difficult..... it is sort of hard to tell if it would affect him negatively because he is super active and hypo now I can't really see large pectoral slowing him down but who knows.....

I don't think a over halfmoon super EE would be such a good idea though.... half my HM have trouble swimming without EE........
