I've had Birdee for several months now, he's a veil tail, so common.
He was relatively small when I got him, so his rear tail (anal tail? I'm going to refer to is as his veil) looked normal size, but as he's grown, it looks as if his tail hasn't.
Also, the 2 fins under the head (not sure of their names) look weird as well. One of them is about half the length of the other.
He's always been this way, and there's no blackening on the tips (I read that those were signs of bites/nipping).
What do you guys think? Is there any way I can help him grow a nice, long tail?
This shows how short his veil is.
A little blurry, but it's another good angle of his veil.
