Curled Fins On Longfin Bristlenose Plecos


I am raising some longfin super red bristlenose plecos. I noticed that some have fins that curl up after they are 2+ months old. In my opinion the straight fins look nicer, so I'm trying to figure out what is going on. Has anyone else had this happen? Is it bad genetics or diet etc.? The longfins are more fragile so maybe they get damaged somehow? Any thoughts are helpful

I included some pictures of the straight longfins and curled longfins. Sorry, I should have cleaned the glass.

Welcome to Fishlore, sorry but we’re having some hiccups at the moment with s, a short video if you could get one might be a better option until the glitch is sorted

Ok, thanks for letting me know. I’m working on getting the video in the right format so it can be uploaded.
