Why is it that everything seems to have a "long finned" breed? Like for some fish i get it, it looks nice, and if you make sure not to breed them so the fins are TOO long, it can look quite nice, like a standard long finned betta i feel can still have a good quality of life, and is very pretty for the fish keeper to look at (although i think I'll probably mostly get short finned bettas from now on because they can swim better). But then there's fish where i feel it really effects their quality of life, such as tiger barbs or black skirt tetras, which are known to be fin-nippers, so if you give them long fins, they'll constantly be getting torn up. Or, while to a certain extent, long finned bettas are ok, eventually you get things like the "feather tail" bettas, which have swimming problems and bad long term health. And then there's fish that just look better with their normal finnage, long finned cory cats? Seriously? Like i mean as long as you're not hurting the fish you can do what you want with it, but i feel like fish's fins are the lengths they are in the wild for a reason, after all, their main purpose is for swimming, it's like if someone forced you to wear fancy yet inconvenient clothing your whole life, it'd get in the way and be annoying. Not trying to shame anyone who keeps long finned fish, infact i have had long finned bettas in the past, just overall I'm not a huge fan of all the selective breeding we do that really messes up the fish. Not to mention inbreeding.
