wasn't it just earlier this year that rosetails and feathertails were considered a cull-able flaw? now, it seems like the more branching you can put out the better, without the little guys ripping their fins into confetti, of course!

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

A qoute from Karen Mac Auley. Last years grand champion of the IBC with over 10 awards in 3-4 years for BOS fish
"Most of my fish are extreme OHM.....All of my BOS fish are OHM......"

Heavily branched fish seem to be preferred by judges now. But some people still don't advocate the breeding of this characteristic

i can see that, from a purely humane standpoint. has anyone done a study of any kind on just how much quality of life is lost in extreme-finned bettas?

well i'd be interested to see one. then again if i did, i might be traumatised into only keeping plakats if the results showed horribly negative for long-fins.

so do ours, i'm just curious how much extra effort they have to put into moving at the same speed. there are plenty of people who can run very fast wearing ankle weights, but they run even faster without them :)
