Question

Humped back?


One of my female betta fish has a humped back. Should I be concerned or is it just a sign that she is getting old? She eats great and is very active so I know she not sick.

I see this in female guppies too.

I have only had here for 3 months but I bought her from petco so I have no idea how old she is.

What kind of tank is she in, water params, what are you feeding her. More info, pictures?. Age is not likely.

The tank is a 10 gallon. And I am not sure of the water parameters. I just set the tank up a month ago so i am sure its not established yet and nitrates might be a little high. I feed her omega one betta food and frozen bloodworms once a week. She also nibbles on the shrimp pellets I feed my cory cats. But here's a pic.

Oh, good think you posted a picture. Did you buy her like that?
Check periodically to see if that grows.

One of my white cloud has a tumor like growth on its side. It's active and eats fine. It might be that. There's nothing that can be done short of surgery.
