    Is this a common occurrence, I was expanding my school of turquoise rainbows, and when I let this one out of the bag I noticed it doesn't have a first dorsal fin. No damage to where it would be. So it wasn't torn off. It just looks like it was born without one, does this mean any thing significant? image

    Most likely nothing significant, just a deformity. If the fish can swim normally and eat then there's no need to worry.

    Wow that's weird but like fat catfish said as long as it's swimming and eating fine then it should be ok. I kind of think it's kind of cool.

    Thank you, I just wasn't sure as I haven't came across it before. Seems like I always get the misfits, also have a cory with scoliosis. Haha.
