Diet, genetics, tuberculosis and even parasites can also cause fish to develop deformities. Those will all look like scoliosis in fish. The fish in the video has what would be called kyphosis - Still a spinal deviation, but distinctly different than scoliosis.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
