Unhappy Is this cory ok?? Pic heavy

Well I just noticed that my albino cory has no anal fins. I believe she, i think it's a she, had them at one point in time, but now there's nothing. Is it ok? She's eating ok and laid eggs not to long ago. I dunno, I just hope she's gonna be okay.

Which piic is most recent? In most of them I can see an anal fin quit clearly. Maybe she's ok!

It's her two fins that are right by her "vent" that are missing. The ones that she would hold her eggs in then lay them. All of my other cory's have them except her.

ahh ok, those are the pelvic fins :)
as someone else said, if she recently spawned I would think she would be OK since cory's won't spawn unless conditions are perfect so just keep an eye on her and watch the other fins!

Actually those are called ventral fins. Are you sure she had them before? It might be a birth defect. I once had a cory who had little stubby ventral fins. He got along fine.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Actually ventral refers to the under side of a fish. Dorsal is the top. The fins in question are called pelvic fins... Any fisheries biology book will classify them as pelvic fins.
