Looks aside, there are internal issues and you don't want to pass that trait down to offspring. They will be severely deformed, and/or die.

I personally love feather and rose tails. I think they are gorgeous, scales and all. But I have tried to keep 3 and even in good water they have all passed. None lasted any longer than 3 months for me :( Give this boy lots and lots of attention, very very clean and warm water and a good protein rich diet.
I wasn't planning on breeding him because if that, just too many problems with feather tails.

awww, that's sad yours didn't last long :( I hope this boy last a good amount of time, he's such a pretty fish and he didn't go through the stress of being shipped.
