new killies and snail
i went to my lfs for some bloodworms, and came home with theses guys :-)
does the neck look weird on the golden killi
The fish on the right definitely has a bent spine. Any way you can take him back to the store?
he seems to be swiming and eating fine is there any real danger in keeping him
One of my fish has a bent spine, and he has been just fine since I got him like 9 months ago.
Just keep watch that he keeps normal activity and doesn't get too "lazy". My gourami keeps him oh his toes.
There are health problems associated with spines being bent like that, so definitely keep an eye out. Also, it looks like you've got a male and female there (the bent spine looks like a male) so if they do spawn and you have tons of cover, you'll want to make sure that none of the fry have this deformity before trying to sell them.
Is that the way bent spines normally look? For some reason I expected something that looked more like scoliosis, ie: lateral curves.
Bent spines can come in a variety of shapes caused by different things, but I've seen several golden wonder killies at different stores that looked exactly like that. I'm guessing it's a fairly common genetic defect.
a freind that works at my lfs tells me its a genetic defect caused by breeders not selecting there stock with care they had half of all there killis come in like this so they changed supplier if they do breed i wouldnt save the young/eggs as they would probably carry the defective gene
Nice golden panchax and diffusa! Have you figured out yet the color of the diffusa? I can't tell just from the rear view. Burgundy I think.
