Yep.
From my experience.
Long fin fish get tired quickly and get lazy quicker.
So people just say theyre not that aggressive.

My HM male tore almost all of my HM femal's anal fin off, she if fine, it has grown back, but just to let you know, long fins can be just a aggressive as short fined bettas. I agree that the long fined fish probably do get tired quicker.

I agree. They do have much more energy and that is in fact from their fins, thus making them look more aggressive than other long finned bettas. Long finned bettas would get tired after chasing a female/male and stop to rest from their long fins that pull them back.

It's like a swimmer not wearing their head cap when swimming. It will slow them down.

I am a bit confused with this though because it is just one of those things that puzzle my mind. Females have short fins (most of the time) and they are still the ones to be beaten up and with the most tattered fins. It's quite interesting though.

You'd be surprised how often it's the females that kick the male's butts! I think from what I've seen is a lot of it has to do with who's in 'the mood'

Seems like the girls get beat up when they don't respond to the male's advances--or worse, if they ARE receptive and ready to breed, and the male just wants to fight! But if the girl decides she wants to kick some butt, that male will get some serious injuries, even from a little lady!

Fin play a big part.
Speed and size.
Short fin has the speed.
Long fin make them look bigger.
Why most of the time the female look more beat up.
From what I see is that the female have a less aggressive behavior.
Most of them rather run then fight.
So what u do when there not enough place to run.
You hide and hope that no one see you.
But in a trap tank there no place to hide
Your just trap and waiting to get hit
That were most injuries come from.
