Zebra Danio Injury?
Hello everyone. I just added my first fish to my tank, 6 zebra danios. They seem to like the tank so far! My reason for posting is that one of the fish looks like it has scoliosis. That is, right before his tail there is a kink. On one side there is a bulge, on the other is a slight indent. He seems to be swimming just fine, and feeding was not a problem. I'm just wondering if this could be an old injury or if it might be some sort of illness. Thanks, everyone!

no illness if you can take care of it, change water and put some coral reef inside then use led aquarium light you will have a beautiful aquarium tank

I'm not sure if I am posting this on the right place cause I'm new here :)
I've got a +/- 26 (?) gallon tank (100 litre) with 6 zebra danio's, 5 guppies and about 15 shrimps (hard to count, they keep hiding). I'm kind of a noob, so I'm not sure if its normal, but at first my zebra's were very lively. swimming al over the place and almost impossible to count. some time ago, 2 zebra's died, probably of old age, I got them from a friend, and she told me they were about 4 years old. Now I have six left. Lately some of them started behaving, i don't know, lazy? Just hanging around, not on the bottom or something, but not doing much either. I noticed that they have slightly bent spines, atleast if I compare them to the others. Also their bellies look strange, I made some pictures

does anyone know if they are sick, and if so, what I should do? The rest of my fish are doing fine.
