It's gotta be more difficult for them to swim to the surface to breathe... I have a CT with unusually large pectorals and he has issues sometimes too... But I think it's his heavy tail that he has more problems with than anything. It's pretty, but I don't condone breeding animals to have traits that so severely hinder their ability to do simple things like swim to the surface to breathe. Which is why I don't see the appeal.

Those arent pectoral fins. I dont know what they are called but pectoral fins are the fins that are under the belly.

The fins underneath the belly are called "ventral fins"... The ones on the sides of the head are the "pectoral fins".

An easy way to remember is kind of a weird train of thought I use... When I see pectoral, I think "pecs" which makes me think "torso" which also makes me think "arms"... The pectoral fins look like little betta hands. lol it's strange I know, but it works! Trust me!

Really sorry guys lol. I looked it up and it seems to be that i mixed up the fins.

So i know now that bettas dont have pelvic fins. Okay so the ventral fins are the fins under the belly and the pectoral fins are the two fins that have the nickname ears.
