xenotilapia tail deformation

Post by polgi » Thu Apr 04, 2013 6:46 am

hi everyone!

I bought a some new fish(xenotilapia flavipinnis isanga and Cyprichromis microlepidotus Bemba) and 2xenotilapia and 1Cyprichromis tail's are deformed.
Are very similar as shown in the video the Benthochromis Tricoti tail.

What do you think it's genetics or poor water stress caused permanent damage?if they reproduce,it be repeated?

I'm sorry because my English is bad,im from Hungary..
