I wouldn't buy from a breeder who breeds for "big ears"... they obviously have no care about form and finage whatsoever. Those heavy pectorals probably make it extremely hard for the fish to swim.

Oh, they're pectorals? (I couldn't tell, such a strange fish!)
That's too bad then :c
It's not right to breed animals that'll end up suffering because of the aesthetics the breeder wants.

I think they are just ruffeled. I've always liked the way they look, but 1fish2fish makes a good point.
