Curious ...Opinons?

Ok so i got nine out of this guys spawn on another web site (all my metallic SDxHM babies)
I got them in feb and they were 3 months old.
i just showed him these pics:




he said and I QUOTE:
"The ray extensions that look a bit like crowntail are unusual. None of the females I kept from this spawn are exhibiting this. Is it possible that it could be something less desirable, like fin rot?"


I pointed out that the rays split from quite low in the tails.

I dont think its fin rot. I'm certain its not, they are all in beautiful clean water. all 7 ladies are displaying this tail, three are in a separate tank and still their tails look like this.

thoughts??

It doesn't look like fin rot, but the tiny ray bits do look like crowntail. Maybe yours are just showing them first and the siblings will develop them later. There could be something about their environment or diet that is causing them to thrive and develop quicker…. just some thoughts lol. But I don't think it is finrot.
