Their fins are WAY too big to the point that they are really struggling to move around.

Holy Cow! I never really looked at a rosetail before, so I looked it up. There's ones with around 230 degree spread, and they're trying to develop a full moon Betta with a 360 degree spread. Halfmoons already have an awkward time.

Really? I've never actually seen a rosetail, so I had no idea. I assumed they got around the same way halfmoons do. :(

Well rosetails have a little more trouble because their tails are really full, so it makes it a bit harder. Some i have seen would rest a lot.

Without intention I wound up with a rosetail. His fins were real short when I got him, and I don't know how extreme of a rosetail he is, as they're still growing out. So far, no problems. He's quite active, and he doesn't exhaust himself or seem to struggle or seem unhappy. He's no slower or less active than when his fins had been trimmed by shrimp (it was even suggested at the time that he could be a plakat). And he may be slower than a one, but I wouldn't call him impaired or awkward.

But on topic, the Dumbos look like they'd have a hard time.

Dumbo bettas don't look like they'd be able to swim against a current, or escape from rude tank mates. I agree with a previous post; the pectorals should be colored, but not huge.

Roestails throw a lot of bad genetic mutations which is the main reason against brreding them
