To put down or to not put down.
I have a zebra danio who has a hunched back and she has laid many eggs and now she is very hunched she is pink and should I put her down she seems ok but and she is in a 100 gal. tank.

If she doesn't appear to be suffering and the other fish aren't picking on her, there is no reason to put her down. It sounds as if she is getting old and maybe dealing with a degenerative condition.

Ok she is eating and she loves to see me still so I think she is fine so and is there anything to help her?

No, unfortunately there is nothing to help her. She will progressively get worse until she can't swim properly anymore... that would be the time to consider putting her down.

Ok so leave her be untill she cant swim?

bettababy 05-21-2011 03:52 PM

Until she looks like she is having difficulty in swimming, or a hard time getting enough food.

KK and she might be hungrey because I needed to fast some of my fish so and now they get food but you know.
