Any other advice on controlling fin size? I like the way they look but just not so super big.

My guess is cross an Eexnone ee f1 back to a ee
And Jeff giant is really hard to maintain the size
Out crossing it will take some time
Giant seem to be recessive gene and ee
Working with two recessive gene at once will take some careful selection
You pick wrong pair and your back to squre one
Long fin will show in your f1
Yeah you can only work with the female on the ee and hm
Cause no stander size male can breed with a giant female
Have the same goal as you but it turn out harder then Ive think
Just sticking with hmpk and giant hmpk

From a fighting gene
Carefully selecting the biggest one to work with only
Took them many year to get it that size and produce the same size or bigger then the parents
Pk is over 3" long
Long fin are over 5" long
Or you can spend 50 plus on a lower quailty hm giant male and breed it to an eehm female
True giant are expensive
Do to the amount of food they eat and require space to house and care for them
