So I am testing the water with my API kit and as I am dipping the container so I can fill the glass test tubes Polo swims up and I notice this bubble looking thing colored like his fin. Naturally I start thinking something is wrong and I go into panic mode. I go to net him, he is dodging and juking and then I notice the funky bubble thing is no longer there. On closer inspection (hint after I stop freaking out) I notice from the side where said bubble appeared that his ventral fin curls. As he swims this fills up and turns into a little bubble looking thing. Great, my fish now has unwanted flotation devices!? Both of his ventral fins curl so I imagine this is going to look really bizarre when I come home one day and he his being buoyed at the top of the water because his fins have filled like rescue balloons carrying him to the surface. Any thoughts on this? Dang if I don't have some funny stuff happen to my fish I swear.
I highlighted the area in yellow, this is not how it looks filled. Imagine a rather large floating drop about twice that size. His ventral fin when full is floating up over him and it looks like a crimson periscope.
