Sounds like he had healed from torn fins before and sometimes when they heal again, if the water isn't great they end up with kinked fins. Then if it tears after it regrows, it does exactly how you explained. This happened to my Rembrandt as well. It's just a regular tear and will heal but obviously would be good to find out what's causing the tears!

Well I'm pretty sure he got caught in my filter. I had it on the lowest flow for a week and a half and then noticed a protein film on the top of the water so I bumped it up one notch. I think he just got the bottom one caught and it went in as far as it could thus the straight line perforation. The fin that's left looks healthy. He kind of looks like a plakat now. Haha I will post the pic on Saturday when I get back to work.
