View Full Version : Fin's clamped? Sick?

I'm not sure if you'd say it's fins are clamped or what. Anyway, I bought a 2in albino BN yesterday and I've never seen his dorsal fin up, and it's rare that I see both of his side fins out. I wouldn't exactly call him active. All I've seen him do is sit in one spot or when I put in an algae wafer, he eats that. Probably the most active I've ever seen him. So long story short, his dorsal and caudal fins are never flared out like I always thought they "should" be. Should I be worried or is he just stressed?

Also... is it just me or when you watch a pleco eat, it doesn't seem like they're even eating? lol
