    Any idea what the perameters are?
    Is there a fungus or something helping them to curl?

    Not sure. there is adequate aeration in his tank so i dont think its from lack of air or anything. It may be a fungus. Testing parameters now.

    Gill curl is caused by too much ammonia in the water. He's gonna need some major water changes for a bit.

    Will doing the water changes help to close the hole?

    I'm not sure how reversible gill curl is, but I think if caught early enough, may be able to heal.
