Question regarding crowntails.

I have had Giovanni at work for a couple of weeks now, and I have noticed that he looks different than the other crowntails I have had in the past, and do have at home. His fins seem a lot longer and the webbing he has looks very delicate when you look at him closely. I was wondering if there are different types of crowntails, or does he just look like that because his webbing hasn't filled in yet.
He looks more feathery than my other crowntails have looked.

I think that there are different types of crowntails, and I also think that a fish's unique finnage is more easily seen with a crowntail. If that makes any sense. :P

Kind of like a fingerprint?


From my understanding there are a lot of fish that are just not 'perfect' when breeders are trying to get that one perfect fish. How much or little webbing there is will be effected as they continue this process. Water quality and food when they are fry probably also effects this. Basically, because different tail types are often mixed, or genes cause a throwback, there will be a large variety.

I've got a boy that has similar finnage. I read somewhere that excess webbing between the rays is called a web sack, which tends to give them a little more flowy and delicate appearance. In my experience, it doesn't hamper their ability to flare or swim at all, so it's more of a look thing.

we currently have 3 Crowntails in the house. none of them have similar fins. Zidane, mine, has very curly rays, but when he spreads them, they look like a Generic Crowntail. King Steve, has more ray than fin on his, and they branch out differently than Zidane. And, Counter Buddy has almost a mix of the two. it's really neat, how no two CTs have the same ray-to-webbing ratio, and even siblings will have different fins. :3

My crowntail has more of a feathery look actually, its one of the reasons I picked him he looked unique compared to the other ones at the store
