also, short-finned halfmoons (not full-length HMs but not as short as plakats) are becoming more popular these days.

I know lots of people who would appreciate it, and I'm sure the fish would like not having to lug around so much weight.

Some of the fins you see on the HMs nowadays are ridiculous. I hate when heavy finned HMs then have the added burden of having 'dumbo' sized pectorals.

I always want to see those fish a couple years down the track because it just seems like an enormous amount of strain and drag placed on what are really quite small bodied fish.

I like a more moderate fin length on HMs coupled with the stronger body of a PK.

With proper selective breeding a Halfmoon should be balanced even with the big finnage and not look like a big finned guppy dragging their tail around. That male as nice as he is would have points taken off in a show for too small of a caudal. Like I said though I would love to have him. One of my favorite males had some humongous finnage but in order to continue the line without over developing the finnage I had to breed him with a female from a smaller finned line.

I HATE it when people put the showing of an animal before its well being... I also hate how one organization has decided what is right and what is wrong. Just needed to get that out.
