aww no. Thats just a 2x bigger tail fin. We dont want bettas to end up the same way like those fat goldfish that can hardly swim.

I think it would be an amazing fish....but the bigger the tail, the bigger the swimming problem and to achieve this a LOT of DT breeding, which increase spinal deformities.

You're welcome pucknloki :)

I think if it was done right it would be a beautiful fish, but it's unnecessary. A lot of hm's have hard enough trouble with their huge fins... imagine a full moon! It would be like dragging a massive parachute behind you all the time! Those poor guys probably couldn't even manage a baffled filter.

I'm happy with the size of tails now. IMO going any larger than this is not a good thing. My new OHM male has such a hard time swimming with all those fins he's carrying around.... and he is is PERFECT condition.

There are SO many fish around now that have horrid fins.. people aren't taking the time to read standards and learn how to breed a GOOD fish... a better use of time would be to fix the flaws showing up now instead of trying to create even more tail types. IMO there are too many already.

Definitely agree--we need to take the time to clean up everything we've muddied to create new colors and tail types and start making fish that are legitimately healthy.

sort of off topic but on the note about colors.. I didn't even know this but I was reading some IBC info yesterday and there are colors that are going extinct because so many people are breeding willy nilly. Colors like blue and red with no irridescence.

I love a nice color combination but I'd prefer a nice red or blue, with neither showing up in the other. My advice....get some nice, single colored 100% geno (at the very least) and breed them. I mean if your going to spend $100 on breeding, what's another $30 for a nice pair?

But would this idea be possible with HMPKs???

Exactly this is what i mean, Everyone try to look at some positive sides of this, it doesnt have to only be of The long tailed regular halfmoons it could definitely work with plakats!

Dont you think because plakats are short finned and they have no trouble getting around their little fins or caudal.

Thanks Mr Vamp
