A few of my fish have turned hunched back and are dieing!

Does anyone know why? or what disease this is and what I can do to help them?

Any advise would be very much appreciated.

HI Swordtail, we need some more info. What are your water parameters - ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH and temperature. What and how often are you feeding your fish? Could be from a lack of nutrition/vitamins.

I agree Mike. I read an article that said live bearers need lots of vitamin c to prevent this same thing. Now I feed mine veggie flakes once a day and have had no more of that type of problems. But it won't help after it has already happened.
