Rasbora Galaxy Problem

    yesterday I went and bought a whole 'colony' of little Rasboras for my freshly cycled 29 gallon tank.

    After acclimation I've noticed that one of them was weird and here we are, I don't know what to do. The other ones seem healthy, this one does not want to school with them and stays far away, in the upper parts of the aquarium while they hide in the lower parts.

    It has a 'crooked' spine, or at least it looks like it. It swims in a weird way, I'm debating whether I should just end the suffering.

    It has nice vibrant colors, but that spine...
    I've read few posts but I'm not sure.

    Thanks for the insight

    Took a better picture:

    I had a crooked spine cherry barb with a spine similar to that and it grew out of it. It's alive still.

    If it seems to be affecting the animal's quality of life, then euthanize it. If he's fine, then I would let him be.

    The only thing is CPD are prolific breeders so if it is genetic it will pass on.

    it won't get the chance to breed.
    There is something in CPD's (probably a virus)
