dumbo / big ears

I've been seeing a lot of dumbo or big ears bettas on ebay, but they all seem to be on plakats. Are there any big ear halfmoons or big ear rose tails? I'm still pretty new, so I'm trying to read up as much as I can, but I haven't seen this yet...

i think since it's a recessive gene, and a fairly new development at that, it might be difficult to combine successfully with other recessive genes like the "fancier" tail types. give it time, we might see some dumbo HM's soon.

Yes there are dumbo HM. I'm not a fan so I don't really pay much attention to them. But they do exist.
