    Hello!

    If you look at my profile pic of my angel,and at the dorsal fin, is it bent like that?

    Yes

    Only the tips are bent and they're bent a lot less than that pic

    Exact same thing happened to my platinum, and I once saw an angel with a completely crippled fin... I moved mine to a bigger tank and it's growing normal again. Sometimes it's genetic, sometimes they don't have enough room, and sometimes it's just the "style" of angelfish :)

    It's alright :). As long as you don't have any deco that would cause it to bend, it's most likely genetic. The koi angel in my profile had that bent fin since her body was abut 4in...it was straight when i first bought her at 2in, then ever so slightly began curving.

    I also had bought her brother at the same time, and his fin is completely straight.

    Oh, well as long as it's not flopping to the side like mine ones was :D yeah that's just the body shape of the angel...not much you can do about that

    it doesnt compromise their health (at least to my knowledge); it's really an aesthetic thing
