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.

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?
