Golden Dojo Loach With Back Issues

Fishkeeping With Andy

Hey everyone, I just barely got a new tank from my friends who is moving, and one of the fish in it is a golden dojo loach. He seems to have a warp or something in his back and I was wondering if you guys knew anything about this, or if it is possible for it to be fixed.

Thanks for any help in advance.

How big is the tank? Has this fish always been like this?

I think he got that way somehow, Mt friends though he was always sitting on the heater, and the tank is 15 gallons but he will be going into a 75 soon.

The tank that the fish is kept in is too small and has stunted his growth causing his back to bend. The 75 gallon may help for his to correct himself but it's unlikely, get that 75 gallon ASAP

Ya, I wasn't sure what he was thinking, but I hope his back can be fixed. It pains me to see this little guy like that.
