He looks like a little duck :) Look at that flower-tail...he looks kinda strange tho...his fin is split...and it looks strange how its longer than his tail...but I still like him. <3

Females with long fins are disqualified or really severely marked down at shows D: Its not a good trait.

I'm nowhere near the point of breeding or showing, I just think she'd look pretty in a tank ;)

Really? Why is that? I thought it would be desirable! I've noticed that its relatively unusual, though. I think she's lovely (even if she isn't a great breeder...)

Little Balthier. He's so cute. I bought him from Hopdiggity.
My only complaint is his fins are so big that theyre brittle :c Too big, too big!

My boyfriend has his brother, Allister. Allister's prettier in color, but Baller's ballin' and has wayyyy nicer fins >:B <3

Probably to keep them truer to the breed? Im not sure, really.

I remember the IBC site saying something like "females with male finnage are disqualified/severe demerits" or whatever D:

And oh :B

That makes sense. Maybe that's how we get those super long finned boys who inevitably eat their own fins or have to swim sideways cuz their fins are too big..?

I don't know, I think it's kind of silly. :P I mean, wouldn't a long-finned female pass on good finnage to her offspring? How does that detract from the breed?

I think most club rules are silly...especially some of the AKC rules for dogs...but its all to keep the breed" pure." So we don't lose what we originally loved or tried to get out of the breed...right? :) I admit that I don't understand why long-finned fems are undesirable other than they are not" natural." They are pretty :D
