Hi.

Mind educating me how to grow and maintain altum's nice, long fin?

Mine is also from 2013 batch. But their fin are not as long as your batch.

Wonder is it because mine is a 1.5ft height tank.

Dun worry bro, your altum should be able to grow big n beautiful if you keep the water in good condition and hv enough space for them to swim in an upright manner.
