Eserah I am no expert on this one, but I do know that not all pearlscales develop wens. How big in yours?

I am assuming if he or she is meant to have one, feeding a good diet and good water quality will give him or her the best chance to start growing one.

I am no expert, but the few crowned pearlscales that I have seen have the "crown" wen when they are very young - the crown is just small - in proportion to the fish. As the fish grows, so does the wen.....
