I'm going to step in and say that breeding for that is the worst thing to do. Any fish like that should be sent to a home where they can receive the proper attention or be culled at a young age.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Yes. Even overly finned fish be genetic train wrecks. Boy deformities are out of the question.

well that's my plan for breeding with giants. To try and make the better bigger so it can make more sense to have in large tanks and with more options of tank mates.
