posibbly she does bump up quite a bit at the dorsal fin. Can you get a shot from straight above when she's at rest (not swimming)? It might be more visible from the top.

I wouldn't say it was so bad as to affect her health, she looks ok in that respect. But spine/head is slightly deformed, yes. She would have been a cull if she came from one of my spawns(I cull bent spines and such as soon as I see them).
She shouldn't be bred if you're referring to when someone pointed that out before.

It doesn't look too severe to me- she has a bit of a bump, but nothing major. It doesn't look as it's affecting her overall health. If she's able to swim and carry on her normal fishy activities, she's fine. Just don't breed her, as others have mentioned.

If i breed her will the genes be passed on to the fry?

Yes. Breeding her will only lead to more deformed fry.

ok now I can see it, yeah she has a hunch back. Not the best thing in the world. It will pass onto fry (hence why people usually cull these guys). She'd make a great fish, just not for breeding
