Fish with bent tail???

4 years ago #1

I just noticed today my white cloud was swimming with his tail drooping down a little. When I looked at him from above I noticed his tail is BENT!I guess there's not much I can do, but I just want to make sure he isn't in pain. Does anyone have any advice?

There can be birth defects do to inbreeding that cause bent spines. It could have been damaged in all the transportation and netting a fish receives.

Most likely birth defect is primary cause but you may want to check your tank water for ammonia and nitrite just in case. Make sure they are both zero.
