I started adding it shortly before I noticed the strange growth on his rays (maybe 2-6 days before). The first and second time I added it too the water as I was changing it but since then I've added when I prep water at least 24 hours in advance.

Ratchet's only started doing this after regrowing from biting. So far none of my other 3 crowntails seem to have this. I think it's just a fluke in regrowth, like if you clip your nails sometimes they grow back uneven.

My advice is to stop the pH up and see if the curling/hooking gets worse. If he's still eating and still active, not showing any other signs of illness, I would say it's a genetic thing, perhaps a fluke of fin growth or regrowth as Pataflafla says.

good point! I did buy him from petsmart only 3 or 4 weeks ago so his rays my have been torn when I got him (petsmart doesn't exactly take the best care of there live stock...very sad)

Thanks for all the responces, I'm thinking this may be the reason. He seems to be in great health and has had a LOT of fin growth in the last to weeks so that could be why I didn't notice it before.
