Can anyone tell me if this guy will be more susceptible to things and possible present a hazard for the other fish.Kathy- One thing that concerns me is if he/she gets a bacterial infection because of the shortened gill plate being open and spreads it to the others. I'm not saying it will or even can happen but keep a watchful eye. I was thinking about that last night before I pooped out.
He looks like he is a fighter.
It's common to see deformities in Blue Angelfish because of the amount of inbreeding it took to develop the colour. That little one looks to have missing gil plates or even be "notched". Notched is a type of deformity in Angelfish and can have horrible effects - it is genetic so it will be passed onto it's children. ()I don't see how this little guy/doll is surviving. But it is doing well.
Pic 3 in the above post was my little juvenile Blue Zebra and pic 2 was my young adult Blue Ghost.Simon,
I know this is going to sound dumb, but how do I tell the Blue Ghost and the Blue Zebra apart?
I have looked for pic on the net, but there are so many mixtures out there, I honestly do not know what I am really looking at.
You wouldn't by any chance have any more pics of some of the ones that you raised, would you?
