Hey guys, so I recently got an ornate bichir. He’s very active and has been swimming around just fine, but has a big curve in his spine. Do you think he has a broken back? I haven’t noticed this before yesterday

I don’t know much about bichirs and don’t know how common it is for a broken back but if you’ve only just noticed this then id say possibly broken.
