HI I have 6 neon tetras in a 29-gallon tank. I noticed one of them has the left fin looking like snapped to the side and white. It can still move that 'broken' fin and it swims well and eats well. No sign of discomfort from that fish. Any idea how this happened? Should I be worried and take some actions?

How long have these fish been in your tank? Could it have been injured when they caught him at the pet store? Are there other fish in your tank that may have chased it or attacked it? Not sure if there's much you can do at this point.

They've been here for 2 weeks. I didn't notice anything like that before. Others fish are guppies, lamp eye tetras, danio, cory cat, and otocinclus. Does that look like just an injury or some disease?

I've never seen any type of disease that would do that. I'd keep an eye on all of them just to be sure but, I think it just got injured somehow. Hopefully, it'll be fine since it sounds like he\she is eating and getting around okay. Can't believe any of the fish you mentioned would really be aggressive enough to cause the injury. Anything is possible though.

Ok, I will keep an eye on them. Thank you!
