I wonder if it's an internal injury. If only we had fishy surgeons!

I hesitate to even bring it up because it's a rare occurrence but one of the symptoms of fish TB is a bent spine. The problem is that I'm not very familiar with fish TB and it's rarely seen. Another symptom is emaciation.

It's really hard with fish to know what to do or how to treat. I don't have any treatment suggestions for you. Better pictures might help though. You said you adopted him... how long ago? Did that bent spine happen overnight to that degree or his it been gradual?

When you get them from stores they are usually 3-6 months (small) or 6-10 months (average size). And oh my gosh I have not seen that kind of form before! I've seen it in some bettas, where it's an injury (usually external) from either a fall, or jumping into something, get stuck under or behind something...

If there is nothing I can do for the little guy, I'll just keep giving him a good quality life and see what happens. Thanks for your support everyone.:)
