Oh, he's beautiful!
And now, I'm seeing the other pics. Poor little guy!
IDK.... I'm hoping there's nothing else going on besides a shredded fin. But based on these pics, I think you need to hear from people with more fish-expertise than I have...
Could you answer a few questions and/or verify this information, though?
a) His body is blue, right? (In the initial pic, he doesn't look blue. But the recent ones show a beautiful, vivid blue body coloration.)
b) Wednesday - he was fine.
c) Thursday evening - his fins were clamped, and he was laying at the bottom, lethargic.
d) When was the last time he ate? On Wednesday?
e) Can you identify if there is a specific ripped area of his caudal fin? Or is there just general clamping?
f) Is there any sign of bloating, or distention?
