Fish with bent spine


Recommended Posts

How does the fish look from a top down view? The profile shots in your photo aren't that unusual for a Cory. They all tend to slope up from the head to the base of the dorsal fin then slope down to the tail. There may be a bit of a deformity towards the lower end of the dorsal fin area, but it's not horrible. Spinal deformities are typically more apparent in a top down view of the fish. If the body is straight from a top down view and not "S" shaped, then this probably isn't a spinal deformity. There's a lot of muscle structure around fins and the hump towards the back of the dorsal fin could just be because you've got an Arnold Schwarzenegger of the Cory world with overly developed back muscles to control his dorsal fin. A top down view would tell you more.
