    They should be okay just watch them as they grow. But if it gets worse and effect them to greatly-swimming upside down,etc you might not have a choice. But as long as they grow, stay healthy and are not affected by it to greatly they should be fine:)

    It's always hard culling fry but if they don't improve or get even worse as they get older it'll be even harder to euthanise them.
    If they don't get any worse as they grow have you got space to keep a number of deformed fish that you can't sell or even give away?
    I know it's horrible to have to think about euthanising any fish but sometimes it has to be done unfortunately.
