I'd eventually like to get a feather tail betta, but I can't find anyone on AB whom is selling them right now. Does anyone know where I can find one?
Also, are feather tails a variation of HM? Thanks All.

Feather tails are a mutation of HM that are associated with extreme rosetail. The reason you don't see them is because show breeders usually cull them because of the genetic defects associated with that tail type.
Occasionally you'll see one pop up on AB from Thailand but you have to look for them.

Ok.. THIS is the right thread hahaha. I just looked at the OP and clicked on the first thread.
Ok.. here's a pretty good list of the things that come with rosetails
The main characteristic of the rosetail is the excessive branching in all three unpaired fins. Especially the excessive branching and the overlapping rays in the caudal finnage results a 'rose-like' appearance, which explains the choice of the name. Other characteristics which are often seen with rosetails, especially with the more extreme forms, are smaller ventrals, a smaller dorsal, ligther colored bodies in comparison with the normal fish from the spawn, bad scales, slower growth and development. The extensive branching also often influences the swimming capabilities of these type of fish.
