Fins too heavy...

One of the drawbacks of big finned bettas. No wonder some of them munch their tails. He's pretty but the poor guy can't stay upright...

Not all of them, many manage ok. This fish has a fairly strong current from it's filter which isn't helping him out.

aw, poor thing. He needs to learn to swim in a smaller calmer tank.. Am I right? Since they're kept in cups for so long?? I looked at Aquabid71's channel and video (without sound, so I don't know what they said) but the bettas looked well! But, such heavy finnage :(
