Aw, call him a fish ambulance You could add some melafix, that should help him heal up. Not sure on the spine, I think you'll just have to watch him for now and see how he gets on. Just check he is swimming, eating and pooping OK.
I can see damaged/missing scales along the belly and some on the back. all fins appear to be intact though. is there anything I can do to help healing? my dd (4) wants to take him to a fish hospital to get fixed
hello, I have some cloud minnows and while watching them last night, noticed one was missing. after much searching around, I spotted him wedged into a tiny crack of an ornament. I assumed he was dead, so fetched the net. when I came back, he was free and swimming with the rest. he now has a bent spine, but still good colour and he ate when they were fed. still swimming strongly, but nearer the bottom. so my question is will he somehow be okay? is it possible he'll return to normal shape or be healthy? the offending castle has been removed now to stop any more fatalistic fish attempting it.
