Wonder how?

Well I've had Aquarius for about 3 days now and she's perfectly healthy. She won't flare at anything,but I finally got her to flare at herself and I noticed she only has 1 ventral fin! And a white bump where her other ventral would be! Poor thing,can't wait for it to grow back! What about you? Any "funky fin" stories?

Also my CT will usually swim around and then randomly stretch all of his fins out. Not a full flare,just all his fins.

my delta, Ichi, has what i call a 'gimpy' ventril. one ventril does normal ventril things, the other just..... hangs there. he usually keeps it close to his body(all the time. .___o like it's stuck), and it just flops about.

I've noticed my Jabu-Jabu had almost the exactly same thing you're describing for your female. One of his ventrals is long and perfect, white tip at the end. The other was curled up and seemingly destroyed but now that he's been with me for a couple months, it's like it's tried to grow back. Instead of growing back normally though, the destroyed fin is still there and it's like there's a whole other ventral fin growing from it starting with a white tip.

Doesn't stop him from getting around or blowing a ton of bubblenests and otherwise seems perfectly healthy. I just won't ever breed him since that could be a mutation or health defect.
