Once they curl they stay that way for the most part. as long as you have him in softer clean water at home then they shouldn't curl anymore and, like you said, he'll be perfect healthy and hyper and such.

My wishlist:
-duckweed- -black and white marble, anything but VT-
-javamoss- -koi marble, anything but VT)
-hatchable brine shrimp eggs-
-indian almond leaves-
-Melano Halfmoon male-
-steel blue or royal blue CT or HM female-

It sounds like fin melt.. when it comes down and fuses together and at the tip it's like a tight ball that looks like a drop of melted candle wax or something similar.
Does it look like the first and third picture HERE?

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!
