Missing Anal Fin


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

I noticed yesterday that my new Shubbie is missing his anal fin, the area where it used to be is black, bumpy and swollen, I started treating with melafix. Is there anything else I should do, and will it grow back? I know Shadow's fin never grew back but then on my little Kameko they did.
