Thread: Odd fry

  1. #1

    Default Odd fry


    0 Not allowed!
    Some of my fancy guppy fry are crooked! Yes, you read that right. Where the body meets the tail there exists an angle upward of about 20-30 degrees. Strangest thing I've ever seen. They seem to be acting fine. This afflicts about half of the brood of 12. Anyone ever see anything like this? Genetic abnormality of some kind? Thanks!
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    Probably mutated as eggs, its probably best to cull those affected unless, you are going to use them as feeders.

    Strangely enough these little guys are about a month old and don't seem to be affected by their...disposition. Part of me wants to do away with them, but part of me wonders what in the world they will look like if they make it to adulthood! Thanks for the input!

    If you do let them get to adulthood don't let them breed or their babies may have the same problem or at least be carrying the gene.

    I just tried to take pictures of these guys, no good ones though. Is there a trick to taking pictures of an aquarium? I keep getting flash bounce from the glass and if I turn off the flash the exposure is too long. Any advice? Camera is a Nikon Coolpix 5000 if that helps.

    Maybe use a tripod or stand to keep the camera stable.

    As for the fish, spinal curbature is pretty common, partly because a lot of different things can cause it.

    I work with metals pollution and a lot of the metals in tap water can have that effect, though if you use water conditioner, it shouldn't be a problem.

    It could also be genetic, so as suggested, don't let them breed.

    They should be able to live as adults though. I've seen deformed perch living in the wild. Polluted lakes with no predators means that they have an easier time of it and can survive to adulthood.

    It's fish TB. I would freeze them and treat your tanks.

    I use water from the well, tests clean. Fish TB? Please elaborate, I didn't know there was such a thing? They have been this way since birth.
